VGA and HDMI out are now working nicely. I couldn’t get xrandr to work (I suspect I could with more fiddling though). Instead I’m using Nvidia’s TwinView which supports multiple monitor configurations nicely. I’ve tested it on an external TFT monitor and a widescreen TV (via HDMI) and both worked fine.
Turns out that some parts of the xorg.conf I posted earlier were redundant. You can use HAL to detect the screens, monitors, etc. All you actually need is a section to force the use of the Nvidia driver like this:
Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" BoardName "GeForce G 105M" Option "TwinView" "1" EndSection Section "Module" Load "glx" Disable "dri" Disable "dri2" EndSection
The TwinView option is required to enable Nvidia’s multi-monitor stuff.
The webcam and bluetooth also seem to be working.
I’ve managed to reproduce the bug where xcowsay gets sliced across screens!
Which driver are you using? Proprietary nvidia?
Have attempted to get the G105M running with 185.18.14 and the beta driver 190.18, with no success.
Continue to experience the error:
FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/22.214.171.124-0.1-default/weak-updates/updates/nvidia.ko): No such device
Operating System: OpenSUSE 11.1 64bit
Thanks for your input

I’m using the proprietary nvidia driver 185.18.31 (I have also used .14 successfully). However, I’m using Arch Linux so I just installed this from the package manager.
The kernel version might make a difference: I’m using 2.6.30 whereas you seem to be using 2.6.27.
Sorry I can’t be more help!
