I-m using Fedora 12 KDE

My card is a GeForce 8600gt, and I installed the NVIDIA driver from NVIDIA-s site. Because Noveuo was making my screens flickery. I-m using twin view with 2 monitors attached which native resolution is of 1280x1024 rr75

It is working much better now, I-m not sure how to test 3d but at least is not flickering anymore though my only problem is that I cant switch resolution from 1024x768 to 1280x1024.

Here is which I don-t think it-s in use because it doesn-t event care to list the second monitor. *I manually added the modeline... which of course is not working

Thank you
