'k, I've tried to search google (even with site:http://www.nvnews.net to narrow
it down), and I'm drawing a blank, so I'm asking here ...
I picked up a nice new system the other day, 64bit, Dual Core and running
6-STABLE on it ... 7900GS Dual DVI video card ... now, I've read/know about the
64bit issues with the driver, but from what I've been able to tell, I should be
able to do this with just the nv driver that comes with X.Org 7.x ...
Now, I've included my current XF86Config file ... it starts up X, but on the
second monitor, it looks like I'm getting a mirror of the first monitor, but
all 'low res', for a lack of better way to describe it, and 'flashing' ... for
instance, if I move the browser window right-left on the 'good screen', the
'bad screen' shifts right-left also, to match ... so I'm obviously missing
*something* important here
The only way I could get the current configuration to even start, without
Fatal server error:
Requested Entity already in use!
was by changing the BusID to PCI:1:0:1 (or anything) even though nothing seems
to turn up in pciconf other then pci:1:0:0 ...
none1 at pci1:0:0: class=0x030000 card=0x221f19f1 chip=0x029210de rev=0xa1 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'NVIDIA Corporation'
class = display
subclass = VGA
So, the question is ... what am I missing, or is the nvidia kernel driver a
requirement to getting dual-head working after all?
