Can't Multihead - Ati Radeon X700 - SuSE 9.3


Hi

I'm a complete to Linux. I just installed SuSE 9.3 on my computer.

I have a Radeon X700. I'm windows I can run 2 monitors. In SuSE it won't let me Multihead. It just displays the same thing on both monitors.

My Kernal version is 2.6.11.4-20a-smp

Here is the output of lspci:

Do you need Identifier "Monitor[1]"

I only see this one
Section "Monitor"
HorizSync 31-48
Identifier "Monitor[0]"
ModelName "1024X768@60HZ"
Option "DPMS"
VendorName "--> VESA"
VertRefresh 50-60
UseModes "Modes[0]"
EndSection

Doesn't your /etc/xorg.conf also need another
Section "Monitor"
HorizSync 31-48
Identifier "Monitor[1]"
ModelName "1024X768@60HZ"
Option "DPMS"
VendorName "--> VESA"
VertRefresh 50-60
UseModes "Modes[0]"
EndSection

in order to know that you have two monitors?

I am not sure about this but this post hasn't progressed for
a long time and this addition seems necessary to me.

almost right,
it does need the other monitor setup but you also need to setup an corrisponding "Device"(ref. 'Section "Device"' from a previous post ) and "Screen"(ref. 'Section "Screen"')

Shapier.

PciExpress

I have a pciexpress nvidia 6200 with 2 flatscreens,
running suse 10.something(which is totaly crap as you have to write you own /etc/X11/xorg.conf)

oh yeah i forgot some thing, if your not useing suse <10< then you can use the program xf86cfg from the terminal or run option(in the KDE menu).xf86cfg is part of most linux/unix GUI's that use X11 or xfree86 as a key component.

sorry i should have mensioned this earlyer

*note*the <10< means greater than 10 and less than 10 but not 10 itself
