Re: Fedora 16 Dual Monitor

I just got a new monitor. I have GTX 470 card and one monitor is
connected via HDMI and other via DVI. While Fedora detects the other
monitor, but I can't manage the monitors from the display settings. Can
you suggest which nvidia drivers should I install to get the nvidia
settings? or is there any other free tool to manage monitors in Fedora 16?

I have two monitors with a Geforce GT430, connected in VGA and DVI. All works
fine with the kmod-nvidia driver. see bellow my xorg.conf generated by
"nvidia-settings" :
