    Anyone running 2 nvidia identical video cards and multi-monitor


    Is anyone running 2 identical video cards, and monitors from both videos cards in their linux system? no sli or xinerama, just normal drivers

    my question is, are you able to move applications throughout all monitors, using the nouveau drivers or the nvidia drivers,

    i can't seem to find anyone using more than 1 video card in a multi-monitor linux system

    please let me know! thanks!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Nouveau drivers? Not likely to work. Each nVidia card will have to have it's proprietary drivers installed. That should likely work, though without SLI I cannot say as I have no experience with that.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    what do you mean proprietary drivers

    if both cards are the same model, then both cards will use the same official nvidia drivers

    Not really. Look on the nVidia web site.

    Im just going to ignore you from now on. You don't have anything useful to say, you should stay away from threads if you don't know what the answer is
    thanks for nothing
