Any tips on installing VL on a machine with 2 monitors?
« on: October 06, 2007, 03:12:59 pm »
Hi,

I've been thinking about installing VL on one of my PC's which has to nvidia cards and two monitors connected to it. Will this work in VL? Do I have to edit the xorg.conf manually, or is there some tool to help me? Has anyone done it and has some helpful hints or tips for me?

Thanks in Advance!

VL should detect both cards and place two Screen stanzas in the xorg.conf file. You may then need to edit it slightly. To do that you need to be root. Then read this:
