compiz-fusion xorg tv out nvidia two independent screens no xinerama and such


Using most recent stable mepis distro, switched from ubuntu. It is very simple to install compiz on this distro but I cannot get compiz-fusion to work on two separate x screens. I have a edited xorg.conf but I am not sure if it is the reason why x freezes when I inject my edited version of xorg.conf. And I do not believe that putting my xorg in b4 installing compiz will make a difference since compiz is just a wm. Card type is at bottom of the thread.

I will post my xorg.conf and if anyone can help me with my problem please feel free to email me too!

# xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg

# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated

# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Compiz works flawlessly on the system and distro without this version of xorg.conf

The card is a Nvidia GeForce FX 5500 Agp 256MB
