Re: [suse-xfree86] dual head + additional single head config

My setup is the opposite of yours with two monitors on proprietary ATI (fglrx) 
driver and one on open source (nv) nVidia. Here are a few suggestions which 
may or may not help.

Have you tried fglrx? Maybe it will play nicer with the nVidia driver. 

Is there any way to let X manage the two monitors on the nVidia directly? That 
is to say two "Device" sections for the nVidia. This is how fglrx works. What 
might be happening is X is getting confused because it has 3 monitors but 
thinks there are only 2.

Have you tested with one monitor on the nVidia and one on the ATI? What are 
the results? That might give you some hints as to the problem.

Good luck, it took me several days to get my configuration working.
