I have an older motherboard/processor (Intel DG965RY with a Pentium D) the system has an integrated video adapter (82G965) and I'd like to add a second video Card (PCI card ATI RAGE IIC) I'm not looking for fast video but would like to use 2 monitors.You may need to install the Mach64 X driver, and/or force the kernel to load the appropriate drive before X starts.I put the ATI card in the machine and an lshw shows the card: -display UNCLAIMED description: VGA compatible controller product: 3D Rage IIC 215IIC [Mach64 GT IIC] vendor: ATI Technologies IncWhen I first booted the system with the card, the BIOS made the ATI card the primary and once X started the system went blank, changed the bios to force the integrated card to be primary and everything works as before, however I don't know how to tell X that there is a second video card and to start using it.What's the magic command that I'm unable to find? From the GUI I've checked displays under system settings but I only see my integrated video interface, and "detect displays" produces nothing but the existing display.
There is a two-level complication to graphics under Linux.Then you may need to generate a real xorg.conf file so that X sees both cards, It has been a while since I did two monitor setups, but I thing "X -configure" may do most of the work once the
kernel module is loaded.
