I’ve already posted about this, but the issue still persists.
I have installed openSuse 11.0 32-bit and have an nVidia Quadro NVS 140M card. I am unable to get dual monitors working - I have used the one-click install with poor results. First result won’t let me startX from the command prompt (various error messages about screens available but no usable configuration), and after mucking about with xorg.conf and re-installing, getting the nVidia eye on screen…only to be followed by a blank screen with a cursor in the top left corner.
My only solution has been to restore xorg.conf to its backed-up state and live with single screen just now. My second monitor appears as a clone of the first, but uses the main monitor’s resolution, which is wrong for its dimensions. Anyway, I don’t want two screens the same…
Also, Firefox doesn’t run very well when scrolling down a page. it is very, very slow to scroll. I am sure that the two issues are linked but cannot resolve them myself.
I should add that a previous install of openSuse 11.0 (64-bit) gave similar issues on the same laptop but was resolved by using the one-click nVidia install. I’ve gone for 32-bit as I need 32-bit support for some legacy software.
