Monitor went blank after installing Nvidia drivers
 
I'm running Slackware 10.2 with the 2.4.31 kernel (according to their website).

Currently, I have two monitors connected to a 6600GT--an LCD via DVI and a CRT via analog. Before installing the drivers, both monitors displayed identical images. After installing them, my LCD started giving me the "no signal" dance whenever I startx. Monitor 2 works fine, but that's not the one I want as my primary.

I've tried Googling for dual monitors and Xorg, but its been of little help.

You probably need to edit your X's config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf), in there the section where the non-working display is configured. Make sure the refresh rates etc. are OK..

Oh, and your current running kernel version can be seen with uname command; some useful info can be seen by issuing

Code:

uname -a
Read man uname for more info about which switches you can use.
