Default Errors using dualhead GF4 TI4200 with X

Hi there, I have a MSI GF4 TI4200 installed and it does well with a single screen connencted to it. I attached a second one to the second vgaport and configured /etc/X11/XF86Config like included at the end of the thread.
System is Debian sarge(testing)
Debian Xfree86 Binary used. Version: 4.2.1-3
When I start the Server using my configuration /var/log/XFree.0.log gives the usual supported drivers:

(II) NV: driver for NVIDIA chipsets: RIVA 128, RIVA TNT,[...]

followed by this:

(II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
(--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
(--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
(WW) Symbol vgaHWUnmapMem from module /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers/nv_drv.o is unresolved!

Fatal server error:
Caught signal 11. Server aborting



Atached is the /etc/XF86Config (input device entries cut off, because not causing the trouble):

Section "Module"
Load "dbe" # Double buffer extension
SubSection "extmod"
Option "omit xfree86-dga" # don't initialise the DGA extension

The "nv" driver does not support TwinView. To use both of your displays, you'll need to install the accelerated driver. Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/view.asp?IO=li...splay_1.0-3123 to download it. Instructions for configuring the driver (and TwinView) are available in the README.

I hope this helps!

Thank you for the very fast answer,
I have finally worked it out and it does it's job well, but one thing is still not working:

I'd like to have 2 independend screens, because one is bigger than the other and applications are often cut of by 2/3 their size.
There should be 2 wallpapers instead of one stretched and a maximization should maximize in a zero screen. (did perfect with old gf2mx and a additional pci card)
The thing is that the dragging of windows from one screen to another should remain. Is there a compromize? And If not - How can I turn off xinerama at all?


bye,
Tam

I am using WindowMaker - maybe thats the point?

If there is no way to get the things corectly to work - how can i disable Xinerama (not just the info stuff written in the manual) using nvidia twinview?

hoping for more useful answers,
Tam

Use the "NoTwinViewXineramaInfo" XF86Config option to disable the Xinerama extension.
