View Full Version : [SOLVED] NVIDIA - detects only one monitor

22nd January 2013, 02:18 PM
Hi everyone!

I got some problems with NVIDIA card after installing new fedora 18: the system detects only one monitor. I checked back with fedora 15 on my second HDD drive - it works fine with two monitors, so this appears to be a matter of operating system.
I have akmod drivers.

uname -r:

Where should I search for the solution?

Let me update:

nouveau driver on fc18 detects two monitors.
I tried to use 3.7 kernel, but there is no kmod module in rpmfusion for this kernel so I downgraded to 3.6.

Is that a kmod version issue? Or is there any way to force driver to use both displays?

The last update:

akmod did not work for me

After downgrading to 3.6 kernel i installed proper kmod + xorg-x11-drv-nvidia + their libs and that's it.

Works fine.
