Exclamation 260.19.12 still not working on 10.10

Today I manually installed 260.19.12 and the driver still doesn't work as expected on Ubuntu 10.10. No matter how i configure X or try every possible setting in nvidia-settings my second external display (DFP-2) stays black. All I want to do is use two external displays (deactivate the internal) at the same time like I used to do with the old driver.

The problem is probably caused by changes to your code that demand that every active display has an attached screen to it. This is not the case in my setup. I've got a DSP-1 device witch must be active to use my DSP-2 but has no screen connected. This used to work with your nvidia driver until recently.

my setup:

+-----------------+       +------------------+
| Laptop ASUS V1s |-------| Internal Display |
+-----------------+       +------------------+
      |                      +------------------+
      |----------------------| LG Display CRT-0 |
      |                      +------------------+
      |    +-------------+   +------------------+
      |----| HDMI -> DVI |---| LG Display DFP-2 |
           +-------------+   +------------------+
