Default Geforce Fx 5200 DH

Hi!

Under windows I can see a second screen on my tv so that I can work on my computer screen and on the tv I can for example watch a movie(through the computer, a divx movie). I want to do the same using suse 9.2 pro and I haved installed the driver and has got 3d working. But I can't get this feature to work. I think it's called twinview and I have tried to edit the file (with help from other people from suse linux forum) but id did not work. And nvtv did not work either. Can someone pls help?

down below is me trying to use nvtv from the terminal, This is the message I get. I have also attached my XF86Config file, the first part of this file(*.doc) is my originally XF86Config file. The second part is the edited stuff that I have tried to use to get this feature(tv-out) work.

"linux:/home/sayemchii # nvtv
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


Gdk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0.0"


thx for any help.

Hmm, can you please run "nvtv" as a "normal user" instead of root?

Look what I've found

There are three ways to run nvtv:

* If there is a running closed source "nvidia" X driver present, you may
start as non-root with option -N or --nvdev, and use the /dev/nv* devices
for accessing the card. This seems only to work upto version 1.0-2840.

WARNING! If there is no running closed source "nvidia" X driver, for
example if you have switched to the open source "nv" driver, this will
cause a SYSTEM CRASH due to a bug in the NVidia kernel driver! Don't blame
me if that happens.

* Run the server nvtvd as root, for example on startup by including
it in rc.S, and run nvtv as normal user.
Well I've removed the third way, since you already tried it...


anyway all READMEs + other usefull stuff should be somewhere in /usr/share/doc/nvtv/ ... please read them!

I will read the things U said I should read but I was just wondering is there anyway to know for sure that I have installed the drivers right? I thought that when I got 3d function to work, it was a sign that my graphic card is installed and working but when I got the message "No supported video card found." I got very suprised.
