Default OpenBSD and two displays

Hello guys.

I wonder if I can face any problems with 2 displays connected to OpenBSD box.
The video card is:
Code:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G98 [GeForce 8400 GS] (rev a1)
In Ubuntu I use a nice utility 'nvidia-settings'.
Will it be problematic to set up displays in OpenBSD ?

Thanks!

Nvidia keep their specifications private or under NDA, limiting capability.

You'll need to develop a working xorg.conf, the one you have working with Linux may be acceptable, as long as you point to the appropriate driver.

Your options with a GeForce 8xxx are to use either the nv(4) driver or to use the vesa(4) driver. Controlling individual screen outputs and resolution would be managed by xrandr(1).

With the nv(4) driver, you have the "Dualhead" option for a larger side-by-side virtual desktop.
