Default Re: Geforce FX5200 TwinView help!

I have tried that... and in the output in my first post, you'll see that it gives an error message about not being supported. Without the above line, no display is ever detected on the DVI port, even though it is connected.

Remember, that when using twinview, you share a unified framebuffer between both devices
Yes, I understand the difference between having a single virtual monitor spanning 2 displays on :0.0 vs. configuring X directly with two separate screens as :0.0 and :0.1.

But that really isn't the problem -- the problem is I cannot get my FX5200 and the Nvidia driver to recognize that there is something plugged in to the DVI port. If I leave out the "ConnectedMonitor CRT,DFP" option, the driver will only detect the display on the DB15 (analog) port. If I include the ConnectedMonitor option (trying to "force" the driver to realize there is a digital LCD connected to the DVI port), I get the "not supported configuration" error message.

Very frustrating.
