I'm having a bit of a problem. I have a dual headed Nvidia GeForce FX 5700 Ultra card with dual DVI outputs that are connected to 2 exactly the same Dell 1800FP flat screen monitors.
I am running this off of a dual AMD Opteron 242 system in the 64 bit version of Suse 9.1 and am having a hard time getting the 2nd monitor to work as a second desAktop as opposed to cloning.
I have installed the Nvidia drivers for AMD64 but when I switch the XF86Config file toA nvidia as the driver things get weird. More importantly no matter what I do the 2nd flat panel is either blank or still clones so I'm at a loss and am hoping someone can help. I have attached the XF86Config file as it is now if anyone has suggestions it is appreciated.
