Hi bwkaz,

According to your suggestions, I modified XF86Config-4:# File generated by anaconda.

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Anaconda Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0"
Screen 1 "Screen1" LeftOf "Screen0"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# The location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

FontPath "unix/:7100"

EndSection

Section "Module"
Load "dbe"
Load "extmod"
# Load "vgahw"
Load "fb"
Load "glx"
Load "record"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# keyboard, you will probably want to use:

# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"

Then I do not have the unsolved external errors, but it still has a problem.

Thanks.

Hi keneda,

I tried your XF86Config-4, but I got some errors.
Here is the XFree86.0.log:XFree86 Version 4.2.0 (Red Hat Linux release: 4.2.0-8) / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6600)
Release Date: 23 January 2002
If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
reporting problems. (See http://www.XFree86.Org/)

Build Host: daffy.perf.redhat.com

Module Loader present

(++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,

Hmm... still the warning about "no matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:9:0) found", and still the error about "Screen 1 deleted because of no matching config section"...

Not quite sure what would be causing that...

Oh, hang on a minute. You have a Screen 1 line in your Device section for the second video card. Try getting rid of that, and getting rid of the Screen 0 line in the other Device section.

I think that the Screen directive is used to configure which head on the video card itself is used with that device (I think -- of course, I could be wrong ). I don't believe that it's used to tell the server which device section to use as which screen.

Yeah. From man XF86Config:

Code:
       Screen  number
              This  option is mandatory for cards where a single PCI entity can drive more
              than one display (i.e., multiple CRTCs sharing a single graphics accelerator
              and  video  memory).  One Device section is required for each head, and this
              parameter determines which head each of the Device sections applies to.  The
              legal  values  of  number  range from 0 to one less than the total number of
              heads per entity.  Most drivers require that the primary screen (0) be  pre-
              sent.
Your video cards don't have dual-head, I don't think, so try just getting rid of the Screen lines.
