 dual matroxfb configuration problems

I am currently playing around with two matrox cards hooked up to my
computer - one g200 and one mystique 220. They are both detected at boot
time, and they get both initialized - but how can I supply the
parameters for both cards independently through lilo's append-parameter?
when I supply video=vesa:matrox:xxx both cards get these parameters. How
do I change this?

And is there a way to change the order in which the fb-devices get
enumerated? At boot-up time I get the bios messages on my g200 (i.e. the
bigger monitor :-), the linux-fb-console appears on the smaller screen.
The bios therefore uses the agp card, linux uses the "first" card, which
is the pci mystique. And I obviously can't change their order in the
computer :-/. So I would like to appear the console on the g200. How?

X works fine on both screens with XGGI but KDE isn't multihead-aware. Is
there a windowmanager capable of moving windows from one screen to
another when using XGGI?!?

System: Mandrake 6.0, 128M RAM, 17" and 15" CRTs, Celeron 300A (one in
dual board :-)

Thanks in advance for hopefully many answers.


BTW: I am going to try Xinerama in the next days...

 dual matroxfb configuration problems

Hi Karsten
My motherboard (Gigabyte 686BXD) has an option called "boot vga from". This
can set to be PCI or AGP. Maybe yours has a similar option?
