Default Re: DFP and TV: I want DFP to be the primary display!


my concern was to point the problem, unknown since today for Nvidia as I think, and to show how the problem could be seen by some people (home users and professionals). Thank You very much for reply. I hope It resolves some problems.

I'm not sure if I understand the solution of having gdm login screen on proper device. I was trying to set up following configuration: 800x600 TV (screen 1) left of 1280x1024 DFP (screen 0) in Twin View mode (I prefere the TvienView orver the Dual Head as I can move windows between screens, ofcourse when the Xinerama works properly). I don't remember if I got TV screen number 0 or 1. I think I got screen 0 on TV and this was cause of having gdm on TV. I can't check it know because I have no NVidia gfx card now, but when the problem will be resolved I'll switch to NV. Here is my saved configuration from the day I was testing NVidia card.

I understand that I had to treat DFP as second monitor, at least in XF86Config-4. But I wonder how the Xserver and Xinerama extension (is the Xinerama build in NV driver????) will treat devices order. It is if X put gdm on DFP?
