    Mandrake 9.2 multiple monitor


    Hi
    I use mandrake 9.2 and I need to configure linux to use my tv output instead of my pc monitor. It doesn't have to use both at the same time, but I really need to use my tv monitor. I installed the GeForce 440 Mx driver for linux(OpenGl works). Is there a way to do so without downloading mandrake 10.0 or any other distro?

    Thanks in advance.

    Check out the pdf that nvidia has for their Linux driver options in X. It has all the TV Specific options. You basically need to create another Monitor Section in XF86Config and set it to use that Monitor when you want to use the TV.
