Triple-head with Ubuntu 8.10?
In my computer I have 2 Nvidia 7600GT's running a triple-head setup in WinXP and Ubuntu 8.04. I'm using a mobile rack to change the OS drive.
I used the Nvidia binary driver and Xinerama to get the triple-head setup to work in 8.04. I also had to edit xorg.conf to get this setup to work since one of the monitors is in portrait orientation.
Before I install 8.10 does anyone know if 8.10 will handle a triple-head configuration... with or without Xinerama? I read that xorg.conf no longer exists in 8.10.
You should be able to reuse your configfile.

8.10 attempts to auto-detect everything and should work without an xorg.conf. If you provide an xorg.conf it should still be used though. You may have to provide
Option "AutoAddDevices" "false"
in your ServerLayout-section to prevent autoconfiguration.
