  1. Xinerama and Matrox P650 / G550 Problem

    Hi!

    Initially, why isn't anybody able to get an P650 running on SuSE?

    So, I got a G550. Starting X or switching into a Console takes 0.5-1 minute
    (!) now and the second display stays empty - and I cannot move the pointer
    out of screen #1 so I wonder whether Xinerama is active at all.

    I attached the config file written by SaX2.

    Can somebody help please?

    Timo

    Try
    xdpyinfo | grep -i xinerama
    to find out

    If not, I have XINERAMA working, but my Module section is much bigger:
    Section "Module"
    Load "GLcore"
    Load "bitmap"
    Load "dbe"
    Load "ddc"
    Load "extmod"
    Load "freetype"
    Load "glx"
    Load "int10"
    Load "pex5"
    Load "record"
    Load "speedo"
    Load "type1"
    Load "vbe"
    Load "xie"
    EndSection
