By typographical mistake i mentioned as "The same steps are working fine in fc7
with out any problem" 
The line is corrected as
The same steps are working fine in fc6 with out any problem

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.

Scrap the previous request, I overlooked that you are using nvidia binary-only

Red Hat doesn't provide and cannot support binary-only driver (even we have no
clue what's going inside of that driver), and because you cannot reproduce this
bug with nv open source driver, because it doesn't support multi-head operation
at all, I have to close this bug.

For users who are experiencing problems installing, configuring, or using the
unsupported 3rd party proprietary "nvidia" video driver, Nvidia provides
indirect customer support via an online web based support forum.  Nvidia
monitors these web forums for commonly reported problems and passes them on to
Nvidia engineers for investigation.  Once they've isolated a particular problem,
it is often fixed in a future video driver update.

The NVNews Nvidia Linux driver forum is located at:


Once you have reported this issue in the Nvidia web forums, others who may have
experienced the particular problem may be able to assist.  If there is a real
bug occuring, Nvidia will be able to determine this, and will likely resolve the
issue in a future driver update for the operating system releases that they
officially support.

While Red Hat does not support the proprietary nvidia driver, users requiring
technical support may also find the various X.Org, XFree86, and Red Hat mailing
lists helpful in finding assistance:

X.Org mailing lists:

XFree86 mailing lists:

Red Hat mailing lists:
