Unhappy Mandrake 10 & DVI

For some reason I can't seem to get DVI to work with Mandrake 10 once X boots. I have installed the 5336 drivers, but that didn't help.

in xfconfig i set the drivers to "nvidia" and monitor to "flat panel 1280x1024".

I use the Analog for an external tv tuner, so it's annoying to have to switch all the time.

Any ideas how to fix this?

My card is a Geforce 4 Ti4200 - DVI and VGA
Monitor - Analog & DVI / Viewsonic VX800

Default Re: Mandrake 10 & DVI

In the "Device" section of your X config:

Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"

More information on this and how to use multiple monitors is in the documentation with the driver.
