dual monitors ati issues


Ok, I've set up dual monitors with the propriety ATI driver under gentoo using mergedfb. It worked, but it's behaving like just one big monitor, instead of two separate ones, like I've had before inubuntu. Like, a maximized window will take up both monitors, instead of just one.

Heres a copy of my xorg.conf
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen         "Default Screen" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Generic Keyboard"
	InputDevice    "Configured Mouse"
	InputDevice    "stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
	InputDevice    "cursor" "SendCoreEvents"
	InputDevice    "eraser" "SendCoreEvents"
EndSection

Section "Files"

	# path to defoma fonts
