If you’ve been following the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan, you would know that the last “book” will be released in three separate volumes. Why? Because there is just so many plots and subplots and subsub plots and subsubsub plots …. plots to wrap up.

At work we have three generic LCD monitors mounted on a pole to view monitoring metrics for our Oracle & Sybase database servers. On a previous machine that was cannibalized for another task, we ran Microsoft Windows XP to drive the three monitors.
Last week we were given a hand me down desktop, a Dell Optiplex GX520 with integrated Intel 82945G/GZ video on the motherboard. When we added the NVidia GeForce4 MX 4000 low profile video card, Windows XP for whatever reason was unable to use both video cards. I proposed Kubuntu 9.04 Linux as an alternative. As it was only myself that I had to convince to make the attempt, I was hard pressed to say no 😉
The Intel 82945G/GZ video card will be the primary card and must be attached to “Screen 0” in the ServerLayout section.
The NVidia video card has two connectors:
A standard VGA port driven by a GeForce4 MX 4000 GPU < - Primary nvidia port
A super-video port driven by a Quadro NVS 110M
After the base install of the operating system, XWindows was only able to see the Intel video card. After much tinkering with the /etc/xorg.conf file, I was able to get all three LCD monitors to work with Xinerama. There are a number of gotchas that you might run into:
If the integrated Intel video card is set to Auto in the BIOS, the card will be completely disabled. You need to disable Auto
You need to know which Nvidia Device entry drives the VGA connector. It must be initialized prior to the S-Video port.
Disable NVidia’s TwinView and metamodes option lines in the Screen Section.
Use sudo lspci to identify the pci bus ids. You will need to put them in the Device Sections.
The integrated Intel video card must use the vesa video driver as the intel video driver will stacktrace when used with xinerama.
If you’re not using Oracle’s RMAN for backup management but you have turned on archive mode for hot backups, you can create a job in Enterprise Manager (Maintenance -> Manage Current Backups).
Recently I ran into a problem with one our Enterprise Manager installs where scheduled jobs would not run. So, I wrote a very simple RMAN script to clear out the references to any archive files that I’ve moved elsewhere or deleted:
