Can`t use dual monitor on suse11.2?

Hi all,
I try to find in yast and cant find it.The ver.11.2 is different then 11.1.Other hand I looked in X11 conf.and I install Nvidia X server I using Nvidia 295.I try to config Dual monitor with Suse11.2 Oooh I click on Nvidia X Server Setting it tells me You do not appear to be using the Nvidia X driver. Please edit your x configuration file(just run nvidia-xconfig` as root),and restart X server.

Nvidia X Server Setting I enable
Enable ToolTips
Disable Status bar
Enable Slider Text Entries
Enable, Include X dislay Names in theConfig File
Enable Show"Really Quit?" Dialog
Could one of you please give me hand and solve it.

I really appreciate your time.


Not an nvidia user, but have you tried configuring dual monitor with nvidia-xconfig or nvidia-settings utilities as root?

Well I was in root the same problem without the root.

Try this:

sudo nvidia-settings

and report back what happens…

That what I get it:
nvidia-settings: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.0.

Well thank you all who try to solve the problem.Specially thanks at oldcpu I looked and fund what I need from there NEW Users - Suse-11.1 Pre-installation – PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums that helps me in the future it will helps others too.

Thanks oldcpu again


For future reference to those running nVidia settings as root from a normal user login, in a KDE environment you should use kdesu nvidia-settings and on GNOME gnomesu nvidia-settings.

You’re right of course - haven’t had to actually do it since I was on Ubuntu…
