when trying to set the "Configuration:twinview" in the "nVidia X server settings" box, its giving me this error...

Failed to set MetaMode (1) 'CRT-0: nvidia-auto-select @1024x768 +1440+0, DFP-1: nvidia-auto-select @1440x900 +0+0' (Mode 2464x900, id: 50) on X screen 0.

seperate screen works, but its rather anoying... anyone know why this isnt working? and/or how to fix it?

Perhaps something with the resolution.

nope... scaling both screens to the same size 1024x768 still errors out...

Failed to set MetaMode (1) 'CRT-0: nvidia-auto-select @1024x768 +1024+0, DFP-1: 1024x768 @1024x768 +0+0' (Mode 2048x768, id: 51) on X screen 0

Would you like to remove this MetaMode?
