I have installed openSUSE 11.1 in 64 bit variant. It work properly. I want to use two monitors in my system. Now works one only. Second is black.
My system has next equipments:
CPU - Intel Core 2 Quard 9550 (2.84 Ghz)
RAM - DDR3 8 GB
Motherboard - XFX nForce 790i ultra 3-way SLI. It has three slots PCI Express x16 for graphic cards. I use two slots only.
Two graphic cards - Palit GeForce 9500GT
Two monitors - NEC LCD1970NX and HP LP2275w
Some HDD (SATA II, 1000Gb) with partitions for Linux with reiser file system, swap patition and a few partitions NTFS.
I don’t want make SLI system for games. I want to see text console in first monitor, for example, and graphic console (Xwindow) in second. Or one graphic console (Xwindow) on both monitors only. Or two consoles with command line in both monitors, for example.
Explain me please. Regards
P.S. Equipments works properly because second operation system (MS windows XP) uses both monitors.
