MultiMonitor Problem Suse 10.2 Nvidia 7600GT


I am running openSuse 10.2 With XGL enabled on a Ge Force 7600 GT, With the latest Nvidia drivers.

The problem is, when I maximize a window, it maximizes to both monitors instead of just the monitor the window is located on. Also, when I open some windows, they start in between both monitors instead of just one. Is there a solution to this in Suse? If there is can you dumb it down a bit when you explain it, I'm a Linux newb
(Windows Vet X_X)


I have seen similar threads floating around but no answers posted to them. Sorry in advance for the repost.

Here are some threads/articles you can read. There are examples of X.org config files to make multihead display work.

You may also point your browser at www.google.com/linux, and use the search words 'multihead nvidia' to find more.
