No graphical interface when booting new install of Suse 11 on Dual Monitors
 
Hello. I ahve a dual monitor setup with 2 flat panels LCD's. The graphics cards are an AGP Nvidia and a Voodoo5 PCI card. After installing Suse 11, it boots to the command prompt only. If I run 'startx', it says no screens are found. I tried to run sax2 as root and got some error message that something had 'died'? I can post the exact message if needed. Looking for any help before i scrap this install. I had Suse 10.3 installed before this and it ran fine, although it only ever came up on the one main screen on the Nvidia card.

Thanks in advance

No xorg.conf?

I am not much of a CLI junkie, so if you could help me out with some commands that would be great. Thanks !

Well, what I did was remove the Voodoo5 card and did a fresh install of Suse 11. Evrything went fine. I then added the 2nd video card and rebooted. There was no auto cnfiguration, and my xorg.conf file makes no mention of my second video card and monitor. Can anyone point me to a good resource for setting up dual monitors on 2 different video cards. Is this even possible with 2 completely different video cards that would need different video drivers?

Thanks
