Works too good - How do I turn off 1 of 2 graphics card
Well, I've got Mandrake 10 up and running on an old Y2K PowerSpec, even got Java and LimeWire working!
The system has two graphics cards, an onboard IBM i810, and a generic Jaton Trident Blade.
My monitor is hooked to the 810, but I've read the Blade is a better card, and would like to strictly use that card. I can't use two monitors (no room).
When Linux boots, it is recognizing both cards. It looks like I have almost everything I need pumping through my 810, which appears to be the primary default screen. When I moved the monitor over to the Trident to see if it was working, the screen showed a blank Linux background and toolbar which was hiding off the bottom of the screen (I'll fix this resolution problem later, I guess).
This answered the question of where my mouse was disappearing to for long periods of time off to the right, and I also found the loudspeaker control on this second screen (I really need it on the primary screen).
Is there some sort of GUI I can use to (a) move the loudspeaker control to the main screen; and (b) deactivate the 810 so that I am using only the Trident?
I've read about the Clone capability, and would be willing to try that instead of deactivation. I would assume in this case that the loudspeaker control would show up on both screens.
There is all sorts of help on moving up to two screens, but not much on moving back down to just one.
