Now my gentoo system is almost fully functional

i've just solve the problem that i was unable to
use multimonitor with hardware acceleration
the config from X -confiure didn't allow me to do that
"the visual screez size is too large" it said,
At firstthe googling sugest me to use Xinerama
ok its allow me to use dual monitor , but withou accleartion
:P so i've put the Visual 3200 1080 option in all Deph section
in xorg.conf gen from X -configure and its WORKS XD

Well i notice that the 2d accelerate is a bit "slow" (when compare to Windows 7 etc.)
then i decided to switch out the
Option "AccelMethod"

that responsible for 2D acceleration

from XAA (default) to "EXA"

The wiki state that it's better than XAA

and its as said , "faster"
Just only in 2D the 3D FPS is no different (test with glxgears)

*"faster" means , can render new-windows , compiz effect faster

its worls like a charm XD
