Dual Screen - 2 DVI on same graphics card


Hi,

I've been at this all day trying different combinations with no look. Just can't get the second monitor get a display.

It's Red Hat Enterprise 4 64bit with a 3dlabs Wildcat Realizm 800 that has 2 DVI ports connected to the 19" IBM LCD screens.

The proper 3Dlabs drivers are installed and working with one display.

Any help would be great thanks.
Here's the xorg.conf:

# Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "multihead configuration"
Screen "Screen0"
Screen "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "Xinerama" "off"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "unix/:7100"

Section "InputDevice"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# 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:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

Anyone even with a 3dlabs card got a dual screen setup in Linux?

This is destroying my mind!

i use multi display systems all the time, but i have never used a 3dlabs card though.
from what i see the xorg file looks fine. perhaps its something else, what is the output of lspci, make sure the bus id's are correct. xinerama probably wont stop the sencond card from working, it just stretches the desktop out to both display or not.
you could try putting one or both cards in framebuffer mode. and see if that helps,
replace the driver setting with "vesa" instead of "wildcat". this helps me when im using less than cooperative video cards. look at the man page for the wildcat driver, there maybe options that control how the video card behaves in dual mode.

It looks like the 3dlabs driver isn't properly installed and you are running the xorg driver instead of the 3dlabs driver. After you install the driver you have to run the x window system configuration and select that driver to use with Red Hat.
