Default dual head set up - TNT2 and geForce2

Howdy,

I have 2 cards in my machine:
AGP TNT2 M64, 32 Mb card
PCI GeForce2 MX400 64 Mb card

I'm running Gentoo with kernel 2.6.1 and nvidia driver 1.5366. I can get either card to work fine on its own, but not both together in a dual headed set up.

Does anyone have any experience, advice, etc. with 2 nvidia cards in a dual head configuratiuon?

Thanks.

Howdy,

Thanks, nice links to bookmark, but I have actually already have a working config. Except that it would just freeze my box.

I have changed both cards to use "nv" instead of "nvidia". In other words the XFree86 built-in module instead of the NVidia one, and all works fine, but obviously more sluggishly, so it looks like an issue with the nvidia drivers.

Perhaps the version?
