Default Dual monitors and KVM switch
Tried to install PC-BSD 1.5.1 on my PC, and it seemed fine until the graphical bit turned up, that is, I didn't really see anything except from my two monitors flickering waith a green cast of banding. I use two monitors and a KVM switch.

Where is the catch? Does PC-BSD not support KVM or dual monitors??

I did sucessfully install the system, but only after detaching one monitor and the KVM.

Default Re: Dual monitors and KVM switch
Support for multiple monitors requires the necessary hardware support and configuration. I've never tried the included display wizard for dual heads, but doubt it knows about them very much.

Out of box, the installer used my monitors in clone-view, but I don't have a KVM ;-)
