Help With disabled monitor support

Hello,nvidia-bug-report.log (2.3 MB)

attached is my log, but I don’t think this is a bug per se, just something that I am very unfamiliar with.

I have 2 monitors running through 2 graphics cards. In the nvidia x server settings gui, one of the monitors is “disabled”. When I switch that to enabled, it wants to modify an xorg.conf file. I have tried to create such a file but Xorg -configure always gives an error. Many other forums I have checked suggest that Xorg.conf is outdated, that instead the Xorg just checks the system on boot (rather than checking the file). Does anyone have any ideas here?

Thank you

What’s the sense of a setup like this? Why don’t you just use one gpu and connect both monitors to it?

There’s only one HDMI port, I’d need some kind of splitter or something.

You could try using BaseMosaic, create an xorg.conf containing only

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "nvidia"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    BusID          "PCI:1:0:0"
    Option        "BaseMosaic" "true"
    Option         "AllowEmptyInitialConfiguration"

Rather get a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, though. Even connecting the second monitor to the on-board intel gpu and setting up PRIME would be better.
