Default [solved] GeForce FX 5200, TwinView mode, no output on CRT

Hi all,

I've just received a new TFT monitor, and i've been trying to set up a twin view mode with my old CRT. I know that all three outputs on my
FX 5200 card are working. The problem is: when I start X using my twinview configuiration file, nothing apears on the CRT.

Here is my nvidia-bug-report.log

I also attach the relevant Xorg log and the XFree config file (the ones in nvidia-bug-report.log are not relevant, I started X on display 1, using
startx -- :1 -config XF86Config-4.Dual -logverbose 5 ).

I've been searching the web for a whole week now, and I also tried options described in nvidia's README file, but nothing worked.

Any help appreciated, thanks in advance,
Nelson

P.S.: I had to rename the XFree config file to .txt becaus the forum wouldn't let me upload it.

I think the driver is trying to use the CRT as the primary display and the DFP as secondary. You can try to comment out the ConnectedMonitor option adjust your config file to use the CRT as primary and the DFP as secondary.

Hi mo_X

Thanks a lot for the quick reply :-)
That is voodoo magic to me :-)
It works now.

Here is the final XFree config file, if it helps anyone.
