I Have Red Hat WS4 and a Leadtek Geforce 6800 GT running on a tyan motherboard with duel opteron250's I have Duel Phillips 19" 190s LCD displays. I also have very little hair left.

Has anyone got "Twinview" to work with this combination ??? I have tried all the various xorg setups I could find but something is missing. I can only get the left screen to work. I can get both screens working on the vesa config, but not as one screen. I wish to enable screen spanning ie twinview. I have the latest Nvidia Driver (733x)

If needed I can show my xorg.conf up here

Any help will be much appreciated, by both me and my boss

Finally solved this myself, The answer is you only have one screen in your config file. I will post the xorg.conf file below, as it is very frustrating when you do a search and only find questions, not the answers.

# XFree86 4 configuration created by redhat-config-xfree86

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Anaconda Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "Files"

# 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.

FontPath "unix/:7100"

# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the

# 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"

# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
