Hi there,
I use debian and no NVid, so I can't tell much regarding to this, except
that I recall a similar nightmare experience couple of years ago, just had
to learn how this opengl thing relates to all of that.

On the debian (mostly dell notebooks with intel card) I had to create my own
xorg.conf to initialize the displays. After this, I can handle it via
xrandr or the controls.

If using the proprietary NVid driver, you may need to look into the specific
settings, but hey, once it works it works forever (or until you break it).
