My Ubuntu 8.04 x64 Disk Arrived!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I've always loved Ubuntu, but I've always had problems getting two monitors to work, so I've never really installed it. My 8.04 CD arrived and I'm about to test it out. Hope this works.

the problem i had with dual monitors was not running nvidia-settings as root. I couldn't save it to the xorg when i selected it from system tools. if you use it, make sure to run sudo nvidia-settings

I use Slackware, so perhaps somethings are different. However, I find it easier to define another monitor manually in the xorg.conf file

before doing this ofcourse "cp xorg.conf xorg.conf.bkp"
then mess around and be the architect of your graphics settings! its very rewarding choosing each and every setting to your liking.

its not as hard as it seems. I am not the biggest Linux geek and I defined a monitor 1 (there was a monitor 0) and then had it display to both. I also messed with changing certain settings on one, or the other. Took a couple hours.

when something went wrong or X session doesn't start, Crtl+Shift+[3-9] for a terminal and cp xorg.conf.bkp xorg.conf and go messing around again!

I miss Ubuntu, I've used it for over a year and a half. Now I'm thinking of moving onto Mandriva linux. I'm sure there are programs out there for getting two monitors to work if it doesn't work on default. The beauty of Linux is there is a program for almost anything. And 99% of it is free!.

Not true. GCC in 64 bit mode makes use of many extensions that must be explicitly enabled (and usually aren't) when in 32 bit mode. 64 bit provides many advantages in linux
