[Problem] TwinView and affiliates
I am trying to make my second display work. But I couldn't achieve. In fact it has work once with two screens definitions in xorg.conf. But since I rebooted, the driver don't work!
Please can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong?
So let it begin by the begining :
Processor : AMD Athlon XP 2400
Chipset : nforce 2
Graphic: GeForce FX 5600 (128M)
OS : Debian/Kubuntu distribution
latest kernel for amd (126.96.36.199-k7)
- the package manager or nvidia-installer, ever download 188.8.131.52 kernel headers.
- so i used the installer with option kernel-source-path set to my kernel version headers (in runlevel 3)
- everything was quite right, since i decided to configure my second display
- after some test-crash, with (Xorg -config config.file), i finally get my second monitor take into account. and i have then two desktop, each in one screen.
- it wasn't really satisfying, but it was time to lunch. So i stop the computer.
- And when i restarted my computer, the X server didn't want to start anymore !!! How sad
- I tryed so many thing, but only my default "nv" driver works correctly (and then no dual screen)
So please someone have a look to the log and conf. And tell me what's wrong.
didn't take my tar.gz as attachement. What's up guys?
In the package, there are the config files i tested, the one named dual-2, has worked once. And now i am running the mono one with "nv" drivers.

I finally achieve!!
Don't know really how but i did. I hope it will stay for long this time.
what i did :
- install the debian nvidia-glx
- uninstall NVIDIA...run (he said that driver had changed or something like that)
- run Xorg -configure (he still detected nvidia driver, cool, even after uninstalling them, hihi)
- add necessary and configuration tweak to xorg.conf
- turned off EDID feature (otherwise my first display shutdown repeatidly)
and then it's ok. The xorg.conf for those who are interested. Didn't know what was wrong with my first attempt, but this time it seems to work perfectly. I hope that after restart it wont bug again.
I've forget, I also activated Video BIOS Caching on the bios settings, so that the os can read it. Because, it seems that it couldn't retrieve it via tha agp-pci bridge.
Now all it is fine :
i tried restart, it works again yay
