Default Xinerama not working with 2 nvidia cards?

Heiya,
got myself yesterday a second pci nvidia card because i dont want to use TwinView for some reasons.
The problem is X crashes when i am using the "nvidia" driver on both cards.
If i am using nvidia on the first and nv on the second it works.
Someone got that problem too before?

I am using two Nvidia GeForce FX5200 one AGP with 128mb of memory and another PCI with 64mb.

regards, atla

hmm, can you please post X's crash logs here...

(The best way to do this)
1. set driver to nvida on both cards...
2. start X and let it crash...
3. run "nvidia-bug-report.sh" from console (as root)
4. Now, revert back to the working configuartion, start up X
5. Post nvidia-bug-report.log here...

Problem is the hole system just hangs and you cant even go back to console. You have to pull out the power supply...
I'm trying newest nvidia driver now.
