Fist off I had this configuration working on 10.3:
Nvidia Geforce 6600 2xDVI to a 4x3 and 16x19 monitor. ATI card via VESA to a 5x4 monitor, everything worked, however the ATI card was running in VESA mode so it was slow.

Now I wanted to move to openSUSE 11, however the installer, failed to configure X at all, I manually copied the working xorg.conf from 10.3 to 11 and after installing the Nvidia drivers I was able to use the 2 monitors connected to that card, but not the ATI card as it returns:

(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Thu Jun 26 08:40:50 2008
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
(II) Module "ramdac" already built-in
(EE) VESA(2): V_BIOS address 0x8a000 out of range
....


So therefore the monitor on the ATI card will not startup. Next I attempted to start sax2, but if fails with the error below:
nuxegandt:/etc/X11 # sax2 -r -C1 -m 0=nvidia,1=ati
SaX: initializing please wait...

Died at /usr/share/sax/init.pl line 653.

Basically I'mstuck as I need 3 monitors and I only have 1 PCIE x16 and 1 PCIE 1x in teh box hence the 2 cards. Running sax2 -p returns:Chip: 0 is -> NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT 01:00:0 0x10de 0x0140 AGP nvidia
Chip: 1 is -> ATI Radeon X1300 / X1550 Series (RV515 7146) 02:00:0 0x1002 0x7146 AGP fglrx


so sax can locate both cards, but ignores the ATI one, at least fails trying to load any drivers on it.

As a last resort searching for the "Died at /usr/share/sax/init.pl line 653" message lead LINUX • openSUSE - openSuSE 11.0: Died at /usr/share/sax/init.pl line 653. which suggested trying:

sax2 -r -C0 -m 0=nvidia,1=ati or some such, but I still get the same error from sax2.


At this point I'm stuck and X is even more broken than under 10.3 (where at least the vesa driver worked). I'm using openSUSE 11 x64 fully updated as of 6/26/08


Thanks
