Question Using S-video and external Monitors on Mandrake 9.1

Hello All,

I was just wondering if anyone knows a way of redirecting the monitor output to an s-video outlet from kde in Mandrake 9.1... what about sending the signal to the external vga port?

That's usually a matter of a BIOS setting and a key-combination... the external VGA part at least.

The Svideo out is usually a matter of setting up tv4l in XF86Config, and that's only if your video card's X driver supports it... most important to all this, what's the card?


Will show that best.
