Dual Monitor issues (64-bit Suse 9.3 pro)

Recommended Posts

OK,

 

I have an HPxw6200 workstation with an nvidia 280nvs PCI-E video card w/ 2vga ports. I have been trying for days to get the dual monitors to work under suse 9.3 64-bit OS. I have come to the conclusion that the nvidia drivers just don't work yet (I get nothing but black screens when I tried to load them) so the twinview options are not available. I am using the generic "nv" driver for my card. So I am trying to use Zinerama to get my dual monitors to work. According to everything I have read, I need to create two device to represent each vga port as such:

 

Section "Device"

BoardName "Quadro NVS 280 PCI-E/Quadro FX 330"

BusID "PCI:64:0:0"

Driver "nv"

Screen 0

Identifier "card_0"

VendorName "NVidia"

EndSection

 

Section "Device"

BoardName "Quadro NVS 280 PCI-E/Quadro FX 330"

BusID "PCI:64:0:0"

Driver "nv"

Screen 1

Identifier "card_1"

VendorName "NVidia"

EndSection

 

 

However, when I do this I get the following error:

II) Primary Device is: PCI 40:00:0

I know that xorg "nv" dirver is recognizing the two vga ports and the monitors. I just can't get access to them:

AFAIK the xorg nv driver does not support twinview which is what the card uses to display on two monitors at once. I couldn't get it to work without the 3d driver from nvidia. that said once its there you should be able to add something along the lines of

 

twinview "true"

 

to the conf file. Its been a while but google it - there are lots of instructions for twinview and nvidia cards.

Thanks for the response. I know how to get it to work if I could use the "nvidia" instead of the "nv". However the 64-bit "nvidia" driver apparently does not work on all harware yet and specifically has a hard time with mine. I have tried to load the "nvidia" drivers dozens of times with as many different errors. So unfortunately until they release a better 64-bit driver I am stuck with the generic ones (and therefore unable to use twinview).
