FX5200 Dual head problems
To introduce myself in short I've left the Gates realm
about three months ago and gladly switched over to
Linux - Suse 9.2 - .
My impression is ... "welcome to the future " ...
But it took me some time to starting to get the hang
of things ... but it's well worth the effort
Up until this very moment I managed to resolve every
problem I encountered but there's one that just won't go
The problem is that on my GeForce FX5200 graphics card
the digital output doesn't work when the system is fully
When I start up my pc everything goes as expected (?)
I have two CRT monitors connected - one AOC and one
Philips -. One is connected to the analog output and
the other is connected to the digital output by means
of an analog/digital convertor.
Now whenever I boot my system both screens "light up"
both showing exactly the same contents namely the
booting procedure, so there's no mailfunction in either
the digital output or the used connector itself !
And then it happens, when the system shows me the "login
screen" it does so on only 1 screen namely the AOC and all
the other one does is "go black". Theres nothing to see
anymore on the second monitor it even seems to
be turned off automatically .
And that's that ! Could anyone give me an idea on how to
start solving this problem so I can finally start working on
two screens at the same time during a session !
THANKS FOR ANY HELP !!
The system is constructed as follows :
DFI PS85-BC/BL Motherboard so it has onboard graphics.
Pentium IV 2,6 GHz processor.
1,2 GB DDR Memory.
I don't have nor have I ever used dual head setups. But in sax2, there is an option for setting up dual head systems, perhaps you should take a look there.
You can run sax2 from the command line only as root.Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
