Question FreeBSD 5.2.1 and GeForce FX Go5600 multiple monitors problems

Hi all folk, I have some problems with nvidia drivers and FreeBSD 5.2.1.

My machine is the sony vaio PCG-GRT915M. It ships with GeForce FX Go5600.

I've installed the last freebsd nvidia-driver port with WITH_NVIDIA_HACKS=yes option. If I use only the LCD monitor all works fine (for now). The problems come up when I want to use LCD+CRT or LCD+TV both in the TWINVIEW mode off and on. In these cases X starts correctly but when I exit from X then my machine freezes and I see strange colors on my LCD.

I've noted another matter also. If I start X with Option "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT", I can see X on CRT only (the LCD is inactive) but when I exit from X the video signal doesn't return on my LCD. Anyway the system is still up in this case and I can run command (blindly) on the virtual console and restart the machine. The same thing happens with TV device.

It is as good as the nvidia-driver doesn't reopen the LCD device.

Will anybody help me to do this problem?

Thanks a lot.

FreeBSD 6.0-CURRENT (early december) and
nvidia-driver-1.0.6113_2 resolve partially these problems.
Now when I exit from X (both with only CRT/TV and in dual-head
configuration LCD+CRT) the machine doesn't freeze and the
control is passed correctly to the console.

The only problem now is about the CRT in dual-head
configuration. When I go to X with nvidia driver (in console
mode is all ok) I'm able to see the video signal in both LCD
and CRT monitor but in the last one the signal is jolty,
unsteady. I've tried to play with the frequency and size of
CRT without good result.

Any suggestions?
