    Dual monitor Intel 82915G & nVidia RIVA TNT2 Model 64, FC6, Dell Optiplex Gx520


    I want to setup dual monitor for the Dell Optiplex Gx520 computer.
    The motherboard has an Intel Corporation 82915G Integrated Graphics
    Controller.
    Then I add an nVidia Corporation NV5M64 RIVA TNT2 Model 64/Model 64
    Pro video card.
    The dual monitor work on Windows 2000 with the Intel chip as the
    primary screen and the nVidia chip as the secondary screen.
    Therefore no problem with the hw.

    However, dual monitor does not work on the Fedora core 6 (I cannot use
    FC10).
    The nVidia chip is working but the Intel chip do not work (moving the
    mouse do not go to that monitor and no image is displayed on the
    monitor).

    I configure dual monitor by using the "System, Display, Setting" menu
    and clicking the "dual head" checkbox, then restart X server.
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf is as follows:
    # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display
    # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display

    are you sure that is the correct BusID for the intel card? check with
    Code:
    /sbin/lspci | grep -i vga

    The intel card is not recognized at vga but as Display controller.
    Please help.
