Hi,

I'm currently trying to get the Nouveau driver to work with my setup, but have encountered some problems with two displays.

Appearently my system have identified both displays, as I can open programs both screens (actually my open office is on the screen, so my spelling might be off here). However, my secondary screen remains black - but connected. I can also see both screens in the Monitor preferences.

I have (bravely i might add) been playing around with the Xorg.conf in accordance with various tutorial advice, but with no result. Below is my current Xorg.conf.

Using the Nvidia driver is not a solution, as this driver have issues with a program i use ALOT. However, I have no other problems when using the Nvidia driver.

Does anyone have any advice?
