GeForce FX 5500 Twin Monitors & Linux
i FINALLY got the nVidia drivers to install on Fedora Core 3 and my system is stable (used a new yum file. the yum.conf in FC3, after fully updating, is only a 10 liner poor excuse of a file imho). the only remaining issue is getting twin monitors to work.
anyone have any ideas? i found out that the 6629 driver on the nvidia site for FC3 is universal and supports all card. nvidia doesn't say this, but several other folks with a TON more experience than me have told me this. all of nvidia card updates are this way.
as you know, FC3 uses xorg.conf instead of xf86. really, all i need is some direction here. shouldn't i just be able to add a section in xorg.conf for the other monitor?
my system is P4, 1GB RAM, Intel 875P, dual boot, nVidia GeForce FX 5500, Kernel FC 2.6.9-1.681_FC3.
much appreciate the help. below is a past of my xorg.conf file. i need an identical monitor added in, but i'm a newb and don't want to mess anything up.
