    I installed Fedora Core 3 last night and have some problems/questions...

    1 - I am having trouble getting my dual monitor setup to work. I have two 17" samsung 712N LCD screens, an onboard video card on my motherboard, nvidia nforce2, and an nvidia gforce4 card. it is an abit nf-7m motherboard.

    2 - i am having trouble mounting the rest of the hard drives...

    su -

    cd /dev

    ls (lists everything, shows hda/1/2/3/5 and hdb/1/2/3 (what fc3 is on) and hdc

    i've tried to do this for all of them:

    mkdir /mnt/windows
    mount -t /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows

    to no avail

    any ideas??

    Getting dual setups to work is a bit tricky, but not impossible.

    Type "more /proc/pci". That will give you a list of all your PCI/AGP cards, including your video cards. There should be an identifier of it's bus and card number. For example:

    Bus 0, device 18, function 0:
    Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II] (rev 116).
    IRQ 11.
    Master Capable. Latency=32. Min Gnt=3.Max Lat=8.
    I/O at 0xd800 [0xd8ff].
    Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xdfffde00 [0xdfffdeff].
    Bus 1, device 0, function 0:
    VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [S3 UniChrome] Inte
    grated Video (rev 1).
    IRQ 11.
    Master Capable. Latency=32. Min Gnt=2.
    Prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xd8000000 [0xdbffffff].
    Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xde000000 [0xdeffffff].

    Bus 1 is always AGP. Now, get the bus and device for both your cards. Your AGP card should be 1:0:0 and your secondary card (should be PCI) should be something like 0:10:0. Remember those numbers.

    Go and edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf. What you will do is duplicate your settings for video card, monitor and screen. These look like this:

    Section "Monitor"

    Identifier "My Monitor"
    HorizSync 31.5 - 48.5
    VertRefresh 40-150
    EndSection

    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Unichrome"
    Driver "via"
    #VideoRam 32768
    Option "DisableIRQ"
    # Insert Clocks lines here if appropriate
    EndSection

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen 1"
    Device "Unichrome"
    Monitor "My Monitor"
    DefaultDepth 24

    Subsection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Modes "1024x768"
    ViewPort 0 0
    EndSubsection
    EndSection

    Those are the definers under your conf file. Now, duplicate those for your 2nd monitor, video card and make a screen for it. However, you must add in your BusID for your cards (remember those numbers?)

    So add under the Device section for your video card an option for bus ID

    BusID "PCI:0:10:0"

    replace the 0:10:0 with your card's bus and device numbers. Both of them.

    *Be sure to give each section it's own identifier, like "Screen 1" and "Screen 2"

    Now, add in an option line under your Option: ServerLayout that says

    Option "Xinerama" "true"

    That will turn on Xinerama.

    From there, go to your serverlayout section that says

    Screen "Screen 1"

    Change it to something like this:

    Screen "Screen 1" LeftOf "Screen 2"

    Where Screen 1 is your first card/monitor/screen and Screen 2 is the second. That will put 1 to the left of 2, so 2 is on the right.

    If all goes well, you should have dual monitor support.

    * I know that is probably really hard to follow, just look up xinerama and dual head under google and you should find some easier howtos.




    The -t option requires a filesystem type. Simply type 'mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows'

    If it requires a filesystem type, choose umsdos or vfat.

    Hope this helps. :ph34r:

    that' will probably do it... i know the drive will be recognized as vfat... as for the dual monitor thing.. i will have to check it out tomorrow... i've had like 8 beers and can't possibly deal with linux now>.. good thing i'm on XP :lol: thanks a million man.. i will let you know if it works

    Are you sure that you can run dual monitor with the nForce on-board video?

    If the onboard card is AGP and your other card is as well, then no. If one or both is PCI then yes.

    This is what I get, i dont see my video cards at all... should i try to find the drivers instead of using generic? windows says the video cards are located at:
    bus 1, device 7 function 0, IRQ 19
    bus 2 device 0 function 0, IRQ 16

    does this carry over?

    IRQ 19? IRQs only go up to 15. :blink:

    I haven't seen a bus 2 or seen multiple cards on bus 1. However try using the settings Windows uses, sans the IRQs. You will not need to specify IRQs under your config file. The BusID will take care of it all. 2:0:0 would be bus 2, device 0, function 0. It'll handle the rest.

    I don't believe so. I was copy/pasting from my laptop's config, and the video card in it requires that setting.

    You should be fine without it,

    this is what I have:
    under serverlayout do i need

    That looks good. You don't need to add the clone option, because that does what it says... clones a display.

    As for your list, that isn't what I am used to. Doesn't show any of the device names. The list I am used to goes like this:

    Bus 0, device 17, function 5:
    Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97
    Audio Controller (rev 80).
    IRQ 10.
    I/O at 0xdc00 [0xdcff].
    Bus 0, device 17, function 6:
    Communication controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. Intel 537 [AC97 Modem] (rev
    128).
    IRQ 10.
    I/O at 0xe000 [0xe0ff].
    Bus 0, device 18, function 0:
    Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II] (rev 116).
    IRQ 11.
    Master Capable. Latency=32. Min Gnt=3.Max Lat=8.
    I/O at 0xd800 [0xd8ff].
    Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xdfffde00 [0xdfffdeff].
    Bus 1, device 0, function 0:
    VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8378 [S3 UniChrome] Inte
    grated Video (rev 1).
    IRQ 11.
    Master Capable. Latency=32. Min Gnt=2.
    Prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xd8000000 [0xdbffffff].
    Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xde000000 [0xdeffffff].


    Have you tried your new config yet?

    yea, no luck yet... i'm thinking it is because i am using the generic drivers. i downloaded the actual driver for my video cards and am in the process of installing them. i need to get my CD's back from my friend in order to install some things due to a shit ton of failed dependencies... but i'll be back at it again tonight
