    Hello Forum,

    I was wondering if this can be done?? I have V10L’s that are setup for dual head. I have some units that might be setup with only one monitor, how would i be able to do this??? the V10L’s read the same WNOS.ini file which says to use dual head. Would a user.ini file be used for this config? or is there another way?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    Hi,

    If you do not mind some messing around with ini files there is an option called INCLUDE= that allows you to set up machine specific settings. In this way if you log in to a dual head V10L it works for any user – same for single head.

    Check it out in the WTOS admin guide,
    Cheers,

    The problem with eg. INCLUDE=$mac is that you want to change screen resolutions and changing the screen setting needs a reboot. This way you will end up in a contiuous reboot loop.
    There is a second parameter called EXIT=ALL which will help you.

    Think about this:
    You have one wnos.ini with Dualhead=yes and several mac.ini files in the wnosinc folder which have a Dualhead=no configured.
    Depending on where in the wnos.ini you have set the INCLUDE=$mac parameter the parsing process will leave the wnos.ini and read the mac.ini before parsing the rest of the wnos.ini.
    You have to put the INCLUDE parameter before the Dualhead=yes parameter and put Exit=all at the end of your mac.ini files.
    This way the wnos.ini file is read with some default settings, stop processing at the INCLUDE parameter, start reading a mac.ini (if available for that device) and stop the whole process because of Exit=all.

    Hope that all makes sense
