Default Re: Dear Nvidia , Its to close 10 years, and still TwinView,Rotate, and SLI dont work

Holy cow! I plugged in my HDMI cable and the display automatically enabled! I could also do per monitor rotation!

Thanks Plagman, Aaron, and anyone else working on this. A huge win for Linux today.

You mean multiple X screens, right? Yeah, it's still there. The driver will assign RandR outputs to X screens automatically, but you can configure which ones are assigned to which using the UseDisplayDevice option in xorg.conf.

You cannot move a RandR output from one screen to another dynamically.

Thanks, Aaron. I said it before, I really appreciate that Nvidia is keeping this mode alive.

Looks like a great update. My laptop will be very happy.

With this new driver, will you be able to rotate screens while using Mosaic? This would be _huge_ for me.

Not yet; screen transformations (including rotation) with SLI and Mosaic enabled is a work in progress.
