Twinview with DFP's
I successfully configured Twinview in Redhat8 using two CRT's last month, and I am now trying to configure it for (a) one digital flat panel with a second CRT monitor, and (b) two digital flat panels. I want to do (a) right now because my current second CRT monitor died, and until my company buys a new 19" DFP, I want to use a hybrid setup like this.
Questions: do I need to change anything in my XF86Config file other than the monitor parameters? Will the depth value in my screen section need to change because I am adding a DFP as my primary monitor? Do I need to specify in my XF86Config file that one monitor is a DFP and the other is a CRT? Here are the current monitor, device, and screen sections in my XF86Config file:
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Dell P1110"
# no known options
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
VendorName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
BoardName "Quadro4 900XGL"
Option "TwinView" "on"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-130"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "48-160"
#Option "UseEdidFreqs" "on"
Option "MetaModes" "1152X864,1152X864"
Option "TwinViewOrientation" "LeftOf"
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Modes "1152X864" "1024X768" "800X600" "640X480"
Thanks in advance!!
You shouldnt have to change anything in your config other than the monitor stuff. If your flat pannel can do the same res as your old CRT then you shouldnt have to change a thing at all.
Interesting....I would have guessed that at the very least, the HorizSync and VertRefresh values would be different for a DFP monitor...?
So if I don't need the change the "depth" value in the screen section, what exactly does that parameter do? Is it completely independent of the monitor?
