Issues Related to Hardware (Sound, Video, Printers, Scanners, Webcams, Touchpads, Keyboards, Sensors, Drives, GRUB, etc.)
Hi guys, I have just installed Sbayon x64 3.3f.
I have two Samsung 22" LCD's, connected via DVI to my Nvidia 8600 GT.
I cant get Sabayon to "pick-up"/activate the second monitor, if I activate TwinView in the Nvidia X Server, the entire desktop seems to revert back to "no acceleration", however the second monitor will switch on then, I can't even move a open window then. Any Ideas?
Please help guys!

Not sure if this will help, I've got a 22" and a 24" working but no beryl effects. I went into konsole super user mode and ran nvidia-settings and configured both of my monitors. Like I said before no beryl effects but I can use both monitors now. You've got to save xorg configuration and then restart x with ctrl-alt-backspace. Hope this helps some.

It is possible to do it. I did it be referring to an example xorg.conf file posted here a while ago, in this thread:viewtopic.php?f=55&t=2619&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=xorg+conf+metamodes
The smaple file won't work for you directly, because it specifies CRTs not LCDs. But it should show you how it is done.
