Default Here you go. A WORKING dual head config.

After fighting this for months, offering cash for help (to which nobody replied) and sitting here for 10 hours in a row, I have a working dual head config that I'm sure someone would find useful sooner or later.

This is a setup using both dvi ports on the back of my 6600gt. One is connected via a vga adapter to a crt, the other is connected via a dvi to hdmi converter to a 50" plasma tv.

This is fedora core 5 (fc5) using driver rpms from atrpms

[root@hondapvr1 ~]# rpm -qa | grep nvidia
nvidia-graphics8762-kmdl-2.6.17-1.2157_FC5-1.0_8762-73.rhfc5.at

nvidia-graphics-helpers-0.0.14-14.rhfc5.at

Linux hondapvr1 2.6.17-1.2157_FC5 #1 Tue Jul 11 22:55:46 EDT 2006 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

Enjoy!
