X800 Dual Head Fedora Core 3


I am up and running with Fedora Core 3 and everything is functioning properly even my ati x800 pro card. My only problem is that right now the card is mirroring the same desktop on both monitors. So I went into the System Settings > Display program to configure the Display. I then select dual head and then configure all of the options and then click "OK", but nothing happens and the chnages I make are not saved.

Any ideas?

This time I ran system-config-display from the terminal this time to see if it dumped any errors and it does. After clicking ok it dumps ValueError: too many values to unpack

Any idea why I would be getting this?

after loading the fglx drivers and such I thought I had it licked. Now my config file looks right but it is still only cloning my monitors

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"

# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
