Default Dual monitor on Fedora Core 5

When you get the driver to work (see my previous post), use the fedora's system-config-display to configure dual monitors.

At this point, open a terminal and do:

su -
(enter your root password)

and then:

lspci | grep nvidia

you will see something like this:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0392 (rev a1)

Make a note of the PCI BUS ID of the card (01:00.0 in this case).

Then open /etc/X11R6/xorg.conf and do the following:

Where it says:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"

make sure to have this:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard vendor"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0392"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0" <<<--- replace with your BUSID
Screen 0
EndSection

and where it says:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard1"


make sure you have this:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard1"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "Videocard Vendor"
BoardName "nVidia Corporation Unknown device 0392"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0" <<<--- replace with your BUSID
Screen 1
EndSection

Restart Gnome and you're done.
