Re: nv status?

I have an 8800 GTX and I've managed to have this working for a while.

I have this in my xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
       Identifier  "Card0"
       Driver      "nv"
       Screen       0
       Option      "CrtcNumber" "0"
       Option      "AccelMethod" "EXA"
       Option      "MigrationHeuristic" "greedy"
       Option      "Dualhead" "1"
       Option      "Randr12" "true"

Then I use xrandr (via .xinitrc) when X starts:

xrandr --output VGA2 --right-of VGA1

You, Sir, are my hero! :-)))))

With a bit of help from xrandr --prop, I got it right! Now I just have to figure out how to get this to play nicely with gdm!

I've been tearing my hair trying to get dual head to work, on different occasions with different displays and different NV cards, and never succeeded.

At last! THANK YOU!

(Insert fine rant about how X is too god-damn complex for it's own good here -- too happy to produce one myself right now. ;O) )
