    Trouble configuring X with 3 monitors

    Hello! This is my first post to these forums, so please correct me if Iíve posted in the wrong section.

    Iíve been running two monitors on my Debian (testing) computer with itís integrated (intel) graphics for some times. I recently got it into my head to add a third monitor. I bought a graphics card (nvidia geforce) and another monitor. Iíve been really struggling with setup though.

    After a bit of initial frustration I had a breakthrough when I read that xrandr doesnít support multiple graphics cards. I switched to trying to use xinerama, but still havenít quite licked it. I had two of the monitors connected to my nvidia card, and the third connected to the integrated intel, but it didnít allow me to rotate (either of) the nvidia monitors.

    Since I only want to rotate two of my monitors I figured I could solve this by connecting two to the intel card and rotating them, leaving the one connected to the nvidia unrotated. Unfortunately, when I tried this, though I was able to rotate the montors like I wanted, they are now mirroring one another, and nothing I do seems to be able to change this.

    Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Here is the contents of my /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    pastebin 6AAb82WU

    Hand here is /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    pastebin NGg5D6n1
    This is the output of lspci
    pastebin c2yxnEZ2

    Please tell me if I can provide anything else that would be helpful

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    What distribution+version of Linux and what version of xorg are you running?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
