    Make a backup of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file

    cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak


    Edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Add the following sections:

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
    # Adds second monitor
    	Identifier "Monitor[1]"
    	Option	VendorName "Hooked to ATI"
    	Option	ModelName "Generic dpms autodetect"
    	Option "DPMS"
    #	
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    # Adds Vesa driver for the vga card and second monitor
    	BoardName "915 G"
    	BusID "2:4:0"
    	Driver "vesa"	# You might want to replace with ati or radeon driver if available but vesa should work
    	Identifier "Device[1]
    	VendorName "ATI"
    
    #
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    # Recycled from Sreen 0, so you might want to edit the modes if your monitor can't handle as high as 1280.
    	DefaultDepth 24
    	SubSection "Display"
    	Depth 15
    	Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
    	EndSubSection
    	SubSection "Display"
    	Depth 16
    	Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
    	EndSubSection
    	SubSection "Display"
    	Depth 24
    	Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
    	EndSubSection
    	SubSection "Display"
    	Depth 8
    	Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
    	EndSubSection
    	Device "Device[1]"
    	Identifier "Screen[1]"
    	Monitor "Monitor[1]"
    #
    EndSection
    Replace the ServerLayout section

    Code:
    Section "ServerLayout"
    #
    	Identifier     "dual head configuration"
    	Screen      0  "Screen[0]" 0 0
    	Screen         "Screen[1]" RightOf "Screen[0]"
    	InputDevice 	"Keyboard[0]" "CoreKeyboard"
    	InputDevice 	"Mouse[1]" "CorePointer"
    	Option "Clone" "off"
    	Option "Xinerama" "off"
    #
    EndSection

    Normally it should work as intended, if it doesn't post back for adjustments.

    ok, so i did all the editing, and the x server fails to start when i reboot.

    it says:

    quote

    Parse error on line 159 of section Monitor in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    The Option keyword requires 1 or 2 quoted strings to follow it.
    Parse error on line 159 of section Monitor in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    "Hooked to ATI" is not a valid keyword in this section.

    unquote

    i guess i didnt see the "hooked to ati" piece of code... was/am i supposed to change that to the monitor name? ( which is a ViewSonic G771 )

    thanks a lot for all the help.

    Get rid of the word Option in front of VendorName and ModelName in section monitor.

    You can replace "Hooked to ATI" with "ViewSonic G771" but that's not the problem.

    ok, so far so good... my computer boots and everything is ok until i go into the monitor/gfx card configuration under yast. it picks up the gfx card and lets me activate it but when i test it it gives me this error:

    SaX Library:Success
    X configuration:no information

    then it tells me to refer to the /var/log/Xorg.99.log for more info. ( which is all jibberish to me ) . i tried twice.. same thing both times.

    Then, show the file /var/log/Xorg.99.log here on the forum.

    Restore you backup xorg.conf file. In the meantime I will search for information on how to dual screen your onboards video.
