Using two monitors with X.org & FreeBSD

Dan Langille has added a useful howto to his FreeBSD Diary website: Using two monitors with X.org

This is a must-read if you’re trying to / going to set up a FreeBSD system with 2 screens and x.org.

BSDTalk has an interview with Dan Langille about his new job with Afilias and BSDCan 2008 (BSDCan 2008 link for pfSense users)

On a sidenote: a couple of weeks ago I came across this video on myspace:

Compiz 0.5.2 running on FreeBSD 6.2 and Xorg 7.2 with 2 monitors each @ 2560×1600. The combined screen is 5120×1600 and is using Twinview, powered by an nvidia 8800 GTX.
