How to get multiple moniters running


I just switched from windows to Redhat 9. I'm very happy with the performance and whatnot but it doesn't seen to see my other two video cards. I have
1. Matrox (melenium I think) this is the one it found
2. ATI all in wonder
3. diamond 4mb (something.. speedstar I think


I'm a new to this so if you could be as desciptive as possible that would be appreciated.. thanx in advance for your help.......

What you need to do is edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config file if I remember the name correctly on Redhat and add some extra sections for the 2 other cards, monitors and screens that will be needed. You should copy your original file to a backup before making any changes and then do the edits. To get you started this is what my Dual head configuration file looks like in it you will see that there are 2 sections for monitors, cards and screens for yours you obviously need to add the third.

Code:
>$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# XF86Config-4 (XFree86 X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the XF86Config-4 manual page.
# (Type "man XF86Config-4" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xfree86 package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xfree86
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following commands as root:
#
#   cp /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 /etc/X11/XF86Config-4.custom
#   md5sum /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 >/var/lib/xfree86/XF86Config-4.md5sum
#   dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

        EndSubSection
EndSection
Now using my file as an example in this section you need to change from.

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
       Identifier      "DualHead"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        Screen      1  "Screen1" LeftOf "Screen0"
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
To

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
       Identifier      "DualHead"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        Screen      1  "Screen1" LeftOf "Screen0"
        Screen      2  "Screen2" RightOf "Screen0"
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection
This should get you three screens to work with. Now you have to add the extra 2 sections for the monitors, cards (device sections) and the screen sections that you actually use to tell the Xserver the colour depth and resolutions you want/need to use. In the cards (device sections) you will see in my file you need to have the BusID specified in order for it to work, you find these by looking in the file /var/log/XFree86.0.log for the lines like this.

Code:
(--) PCI: (0:10:0) Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture rev 17, Mem @ 0xfdffd000/12
(--) PCI:*(0:12:0) nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] rev 161, Mem @ 0xfa000000/24, 0xe0000000/27
(--) PCI: (1:0:0) nVidia Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] rev 161, Mem @ 0xfb000000/24, 0xf0000000/27
For the driver to use for the Matrox you should be using the mga for the AIW card use ati and I believe it should be sis for the Diamond although you may want to Google on this one. You should leave the keyboard and mouse sections in your file aloneand once done the editing save the file and restart the X server with the CTRL + ATL + Backspace keys at the same time or I believe if at the console as root init 3 then init 5 to get back to a running Xserver. If you have any problems can you post the log and config files I mention above along with the details on your monitors. One more thing in the Section "Module" make sure that your file has the line Load "xtrap this is what allows you to move between all the desktops.

A basic section for a video card would look like this.

Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        VendorName  "nVidia Corporation"
        BoardName   "ASUSTek NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
        BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection
And the only really important parts for X are the Identifier, Driver and BusID lines. The Identifier is used when putting together the Screen sections so X knows which Device section is being used for that screen along with the BusID so it knows which slot the card is in to send the signals too and of course the Driver tells it what driver to use. When adding the cards each Identifier should be unique as in my file Card0, Card1 and for yours a Card2 so you have the 3 sections. You should do this with the monitors and screens as well.

As I show you in my first post look in the /var/log/XFree86.0.log file and X will show you the cards detected and the busid's for each.

ok heres the problem. My current config does not have any mention BUS ID.. If I post the files could you edit them for me? this way I could see what you did and would have a basis for future reference

Sure in addition to the config and log files can you post details on the monitors and which monitor goes with which video card also the resolution you want the screens to be.

Alright the same monitors makes it easier for that part try this below for the XF86Config. Now the Diamond card is a bit tricky because according to this page there are many different drivers they have used for their cards I have the sis driver but to get it going quickly you should be able to use the vesa driver for it.
Code:
# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        Screen      1  "Screen1" RightOf  "Screen0"
        Screen      2  "Screen2" LeftOf  "Screen0"
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
	InputDevice    "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"
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.

	FontPath     "unix/:7100"

Well the only section I would need to see is where the cards get detected to use as the BusID's in the config file. You can look into and get the proper numbers like I show in my first post then put them into the sections in the config file I posted just above this post.
