Hi all,

I have Dell system with two video cards:

  • VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82865G Integrated Graphics Controller
  • VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 4000]

I do want to have dual screens but I wasn't able to do that. I update to latest Karmic Alpha release -looking for additional compatibility on the XServer (no clue why I thought that), but the things is it still doesn' t work.

I just wanna now, is it possible to make it work?
If so, should I set the " onboard" video card as the default one (on the Bios Setup)?

I changed and tried several xorg.conf files and I get to the point were settings made it works for one display -I tried also setting up one screen at the time, just to validate that it works in a "standalone manual configuration" way, but only Intel video card works. Even default configuration seems to fail.

Help will be really appreciated. Even if the answer is NO (so I can stop trying)
