All I end up with is 3 blank monitors when I try to use a similar conf in xorg.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

No rush.
I have been using Ubuntu sans 2 monitors.
My Slack box still works fine to.

I think that conf has to be pretty close.
All monitors come on,but all black. No error message. But, looks like it hangs.

I would love to have a working xorg.conf since I really haven't fully decided which distro will be the "one" for this system. I really like Ubuntu, but I still would love to try Debian proper,Arch, & Slackware 10.1.

Thanks,
Blair

Matarodi,

1. I am not sure how much ram memory you need for gui desktop. I am running 3 cards and I have 512md PC2700 ram.
2. PCI express should not matter as fas as multi-user goes.
3. Step by step...Are you using ubuntu? What are your specs?(vid card,monitor,distro, etc...)Post your current xorg.conf.

I will help the best I can.

Regards,
Blair

Well, I'm tring to set up a multihead monitor in Kubuntu. I feel like I'm so close, yet so far. I've gotten each monitor to show a different desktop. The only problem is that I can only manipulate one. I can influence the desktop on the other monitor by going into my Home directory and dragging files into a folder that was created called "Desktop1". I'm a linux noob (This is my first full day trying to get it working) so sorry if I've done something incredibly stupid, don't hurt me.

Anyway, my xorg.conf file is as follows.
Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg 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 /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following commands:
#
#   cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.custom
#   sudo sh -c 'md5sum /etc/X11/xorg.conf >/var/lib/xfree86/xorg.conf.md5sum'
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

I am glad you got it working.

Did you say you have two independent Desktops.....or one big Desktop?

My Xorg gets me one big Desktop. Better than nothing.

Do you have 3d working?

Regards,
Blair

I've gotten one big desktop. Before I fixed my typo though, I seemed to have two completely independant desktops. The problem was that I couldn't figure out how to switch to the second one.

I haven't tried to get the 3D working (I'm sort of assuming it won't). When I do I'll try and post my experiance.
