Question Isues with custom modelines and TwinView

Hello,

I have the following setup:
Centos 4.3
2.6.9-42.0.2.EL.smp
NVIDIA GPU GeForce PCX 5750 at PCI:3:0:0
VideoRAM: 262144 kBytes
VideoBIOS: 04.36.20.38.00
Detected PCI Express Link width: 16X

First I have read the Nvidia readme file and I have setup dual headed displays. I have a LCD on one output and a Barco projector on the other output. On our other host the Barco projector works with the following "monitor section" in single head mode

#
# forces VertRefresh to be 120Hz
#
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Barco"
ModelName "Projector"
HorizSync 30 - 207
VertRefresh 80 - 125
ModeLine "1024x768" 136.52 1024 1072 1312 1408 768 770 782 808 -VSync -HSync
ModeLine "1280x1024" 205.44 1280 1336 1592 1904 1024 1029 1034 1079 -VSync -HSync
EndSection

Now the question is how do I get this to work in dual head mode with a LCD. So far the only thing that works on projector is 640x480.

Any suggestions ?

Here is xorg.conf file.

Identifier "XFree86 Configured"

InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Default Re: Isues with custom modelines and TwinView

It would be more useful for debugging if you gave your custom modelines a unique name, so that they could be differentiated from the standard modes.

Please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 6

and then generate and post an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
Lonni
