Default [SOLUTION] linux 2.4.2 + nvidia4496 + GF4 = CRT Desktop + TV-OUT fullscreen DVD

input:
Linux 2.4.2
nvidia 4496
GeForce4
CRT
TV connected via SVIDEO
KDE 3.1
xine + dvdnav + ...

output:
Our usual desktop environment on CRT (display=:0.0) and another desktop on TV (display=:0.1)
Exiting KDE doesn't break the fb
You can watch fullscreen DVD on TV and use CRT desktop. Or in case you have 2 DVD drives you can watch two different movies on TV and CRT.

Please note the order of sections IS important. You need to edit the monitors' characteristics to match your hardware.
The solution is not new, but it works and might be helpful.

Enjoy!

Default Re: [SOLUTION] linux 2.4.2 + nvidia4496 + GF4 = CRT Desktop + TV-OUT fullscreen DVD

Hello,

Thanks for the help, but it doesn't work -(
At least it doen't screw up my framebuffer, but the X server gives me this --->

Fatal server error:
Requested Entity already in use!


A visit to dr. Google showed me that i'm not the only one having this problem, and on other card types (than nvidia) as well, but i wasn't able to find what causes this.

Last entries in the log file are:
