Default XBMC on Fedora 10 Dual head with nVidia

I just Compiled and installed XBMC on a fedora 10 unit running 2 displays in clone mode. Display 1 is a 32" HDTV LCD, and display 2 is my integrated notebook display. I used this guide http://www.howtoforge.com/installing...-fedora-9-i386. everything went fine and I was able to build and install with no errors or warnings. However when I try to run XBMC, the window opens for a split second and then Xwindows does a full restart. Thats it no message in dmesg or the Xorg log file. Ny thoughts would be appreciated.

GeForce4 Ti 4200 Go AGP 8x

Ok, I don't see anything I even deleted all the log files and then tried running XBMC and looked in /var/log and there where only 2 files created.

pm-powersave.log
Xorg.0.log

Where else should I look.

Actually no it is not. and it has been causing samba issues but I have been putting that off cause it is not important right now. I'll disable it and see if that helps.

Have you tried editing your xorg.conf and setting the external monitor to be the primary there?

Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Clone"

This is where is saying clone the display on both monitors, try replacing Clone with "Left" or "Right" - not sure if the built in monitor will be primary still or not. Any way to open the box and physically disconnect the broken monitor?
