Hi Jason,

i am experiencing the same problems as you.

I have 2 Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT in my PC. 2 TFT's are connected to the
first card, a single TFT is connected to the second card.

All three Displays were running fine using Xinerama with Fedora 11.

After upgrading to Fedora 12 i am able to use the 2 Displays connected
to the first card.

As soon as i enable the third display, X would load but the System
crashes if i move the mouse. Sometimes the Machine isn't even pingable
after that anymore.

I already tried to build a new xorg.conf with the nvidia-settings tool,
but the result is the same as if i use my old xorg.conf (which was
usable under Fedora 11).

I think that it could have something to do with the newer X-Server of
Fedora 12. I think that the Nvidia Driver doesnt fit to that X-Server
version, but i might be wrong.

I just checked the Nvidia Website for new beta drivers and found a new
version - 195.30 (released on 23rd of December). I will try this version

Regards, Florian
