Hi, I've been trying to get twinview working with a tft and a crt for days no with no success.
GFX Card used is a MSI Geforce4TI4200-64 with both analogue and dvi plugs.
Driver is 5336 / OS: Debian Unstable / Kernel 2.6.7 / Xfree4.3.0
I can get them working indivually but never together. When i try using the ConnectedMonitor Option(dfp, crt and other way around, even tried crt,crt) x wont start telling me CRTC mapping failed.

I tried setting the TFT as primary and CRT as secondary Display, but with no success.

Please give me a hand on this, i'm really getting desperate here...

Here the device,monitor and screen sections of my xf86config-4:

EndSection

Have you tried using yanc? It certainly makes things easier.
