Re: nVidia GeForce 6600 GT PCI Express - working?
I am using Nvidia's TwinView/Xinerama in XF86Config-4:
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "TwinView" "true"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30.0-75.0"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "50.0-85.0"
Option "MetaModes" "1280x1024, 1280x1024; 1280x1024, 1280x1024;"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "RightOf"
Option "Xinerama" "on"
(in "Screen" section), and it works exactly as Lennart describes (panels on one screen etc.). I haven't managed to play any games apart from tuxracer yet, but it presents a problem in the fact that the game displays at 640x480 (or 800x600 i think) in between the two screens, so half the game is on the First VDU (video display unit), the other half is on the Second VDU.
