Default dual monitors dual 6600LE (non SLI)

Hi,

I am using Mandriva 2006.0 with two nvidia 6600LEs running in non-sli mode and the latest 64-bit "nv" drivers. The following xorg.conf does not work when I invoke startx just after logging in the first time! However, if I use a config file for single display "startx", exit, and reissue "startx" with the below xorg.conf, everything works great. The error log hasn't very useful in diagnosing the problem.

Do you see anything that needs fixing?

Thanks for your help!

> Driver "nv"

This means you are using the opensource Xorg driver, not the nvidia driver that is being discussed on this forum.
Did you install it?
