Asus FX5700 twinview dead second monitor
I am using a custom built linux distribution, the details are
build from linux 18.104.22.168 headers
kernel 2.6.9 and 2.6.10
glibc snapshot Glibc (20041220)
I am using x-org 6.8.1
my video card is an asus V9570/TD 256 meg
I'm using drivers 1.0-6629 and I have tried older
I have 2 identical Dell FP1901 TFT monitors. The left hand side monitor is connected via a VGA cable, the right is connected via a DVI digial cable
When I startx the right hand DVI connected monitor appears to lag .5 of a second behind the VGA one and fails to sync and drops into powersave mode
this happens 14 times out of 15 starts on average so I have to startx around 15-20 times to get my twinview config to spread onto both screens.
When the second monitor is in powersave mode I can still move the mouse off the first monitor onto the second (although I can't see it) so the system appears to be aware of the second display even though its not powering it on.
I have tried swapping the monitor cables around and the problem always follows the DVI connected device
I've tried difference cables also
the card works %100 under windows using twinview.
I have attatched a zipfile with the xorg.conf, a FAILED x server startup, my kernel config, and the nvidia bug report
Any help or advice on this would be appriciated
