nvidia, cant gdmlogin be the DVI and not the VGA ?


Hi

I am setting up xinerama.
And no way, the VGA is always the first display.
Then gdm is always there.

Cant the first display be the DVI one ?

I have a nvidia card with both output dvi and vga.
vga would be if it works my right and secondary screen.

thanks

Never used the Xinerama but I had the same problem with my dual head setup until I used the UseDisplayDevice" option here is my Monitor sections. You can find the proper numbers for the DFP-0 and CRT-1 by looking into your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file in the part where the monitors get detected.

Code:
# Dell 2007WFP
Section "Monitor"
       DisplaySize      431   272     # mm
       Identifier   "Monitor0"
       VendorName   "Dell"
       ModelName    "2007WFP"
       HorizSync    30-81
       VertRefresh  56-76
       Option       "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP-0"
       Option       "AllowDDCCI" "on"
       Option       "DPMS" "true"
       Option       "BackingStore" "On"
EndSection

# Philips 201B4
Section "Monitor"
       DisplaySize      406   305     # mm
       Identifier  "Monitor1"
       VendorName  "Philips"
       ModelName   "201B4"
       HorizSync    30-115 # DDC-probed
       VertRefresh  50-160 # DDC-probed
       Option      "UseDisplayDevice" "CRT-1"
       Option      "DPMS"  "true"
       Option      "BackingStore" "On"
EndSection
