RH 9.0 - trying to get nvidia twinview working...
 
I've just done a fresh install of Red Hat 9.0 and I downloaded and installed the latest nvidia drivers.... I've got a PNY GeForce 5200 129MB agp card that has dual heads... I'm trying to get dual monitors to work but everything I tried keeps defualting the monitor to just one...

Here's my XF86Config file settings:

# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "DevInputMice" "AlwaysCore"
EndSection

Section "Files"
# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database. Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db"). There is normally
# no need to change the default.

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

RgbPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
FontPath "unix/:7100"

Section "InputDevice"
# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
# Option "Xleds" "1 2 3"

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults). For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
# Option "XkbModel" "pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
# Option "XkbModel" "microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# or:
# Option "XkbLayout" "de"
# Option "XkbVariant" "nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
# Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:nocaps"

Did you try yanc? http://yanc.sourceforge.net/index-en.html It has worked for me in the past.

Twinview seems to be grayed out.... Is there something I'm doing wrong? Twinview works with XP Pro...

The last time I tried yanc, it gave me a similar error and I wasn't able to figure out why. Previous to that it worked great. I ended up just manually editing my XF86Config-4 file following the Nvidia Readme: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Li...111/README.txt

You also seem to use both dri and nvidia(not a good idea, unless you know what you're doing).
