    monitor 2 is not there.. .


    i manually edited my XF86Config file. based from my readings, it should work. i only got one error when i tried this out, and that was an IDENTIFIER being labeled the same with another monitor. i changed it to MONITOR1. i am assuming that you can label the IDENTIFIER part anything as long as it is unique. i got to run X, but my 2nd monitor isn't there.

    can somebody check this out for me please. my PCI video card is properly identified by Linux. i'm using generic for both monitors just to be safe. thanks!

    Seems to me like it should work. What does the log say?

    i checked the logs and i don't see anything unusual. or maybe i'm missing something. do you need the whole thing coz it's quite long? i did see something when i stopped X. linux said something about the device not being there. but i don't know which device it's talking about. i mean, it detected the card properly. the monitor is in good condition.. . ?

    The best thing would probably be if you just mailed the log to me. I can put it up on my server and link to it for everyone to see.
