nvidia 6600GT / twinview / dual display / XFree86 configuration


Hello again,

Can anyone explain to me how XFfree is configured so I have two displays (1280x1024@60hz) and the desktop spaning across them (2560x1024@60)

The only config I know is that I have to add the twinview "true" and some more options
in DEVICE section.

How do I configure SCREEN, DISPLAY, SERVER LAYOUT SECTIONS

an already used XFree86 would be good, but with some comments, so I know what I'm doing.

Thanks in advance

At home I use a GeForce FX5200 128 MB DDR with the following options in my XFREE86:

Code:
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "NVIDIA GeForce FX-5200"
        Driver          "nvidia"
#       Option "NoLogo"    "1" # Nao aparece o logo da nvidia
#        Option "TwinView"   "1" # ativa a opcao de saida de video
#        Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync"   "31-50"
#        Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
#        Option "TwinViewOrientation"      "Clone" # no outro monitor, o que sairia, no caso clone vai sair a mesma coisa que estiver no monitor primario#       Option "MetaModes"                "1024x768,1024x768,800x600,800x600" # as resoluções dos monitores, primario e secundario
#        Option "ConnectedMonitor"         "CRT, TV" # CRT pra monitor normal, tv para televisao ( acho q eh isso mesmo )
#        Option "TVStandard"               "PAL-M" # pal-m
#        Option "TVOutFormat"              "SVIDEO" # super video
EndSection

I don't really know if this could help, because these are the configurations for TV-OUT, but I guess you could change and edit some of the lines above to get a similar result. In the NVIDIA package documentation is included too, you should give a look...


Cya!

still doesn't work . I'm pretty sure it needs configuration in the screen, display and server layout parts of the XF86config
