one screen blank unless nv loaded first... then nvidia works fine
When I reboot and startx, only one of my 2 DVI monitors comes up (the one that was active during the console mode). The X server never finishes loading and the second monitor never becomes active.
However, everything works fine if I use the nv driver instead of the nvidia driver. Interestingly, once I have started X with the nv driver, I can then exit and switch to the nvidia driver without any problems. I don't know what's really going on, but it seems like the nv driver is puting the monitor or the graphics card into an "active" state-- which can then be utilized by the nvidia driver.
Obviously, I don't want to start X twice, every time I reboot (first with nv and then with nvidia).
Any suggestions on what I should try next?

Re: 2-card, dual dvi, xinerma, rhfc4, one screen blank unless 'nv' loaded first
Do you still have this problem if you upgrade to the 1.0-7667 driver?
If so can you generate an nvidia-bug-report.log the next time this problem happens (and before you shutdown X to use the 'nv' driver)?
