Default Dual-head with Quadro FX 550


I am trying to make the Dual-head works using my new Quadro FX550. my OS is Red Hat Enterprise 4 update 4 on 64bit (Intel).

I used to have both of my screens showing the same, but when I downloaded and installed the latest available Linux driver, the nVidia logo appears, and the other screen turned blank (so only one screen is working now)

when I tried /sbin/lspci , what I got was
nVidia Corporation: Unknown device 014d (rev a2)

after a double check I found that this ID "0x014D" is not supported in nVidia driver

The problem I am facing now, is when I tried to setup the dual-head using the Redhat GUI (system-config-display)
like in the following link

when I hit ok I got this error
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-display/xConfigDialog.py", line 200, in ok
    if card.getCardData()["NAME"] == self.secondVideocardOptionMenu.get_menu().get_active().get_data("NAME"):

Default Re: Dual-head with Quadro FX 550

Redhat's X configuration tools are unaware of the existence of the nvidia driver. You'll need to either edit xorg.conf manually, or use nvidia-xconfig (see its man page for details).

1.0-9631 fully supports the Quadro FX 550.
