Re: [vox-tech] Accessing remote screen

I would like to take a look at it...

I'm trying to run concurrent X sessions on the machine. After starting one display with

startx -- :0 -layout AGPTwinView

the two monitors come up just fine with the desktop across both screens, then

startx --:1 -layout PCI_CARD

brings up the single monitor attached to the PCI card; however it appears X deactivates the hardware on the AGP card and the first two monitor goes blank. Shutdown the second X server for :1 and :0 comes back.

Another puzzling part is when starting X with the bare command "startx" the third monitor comes up and the display :0 is active on the PCI card. The AGP slot is the boot slot.

I've been plowing through all the various FAQs, email groups, and tutorials looking for info or similar questions, but unable to find anything on this problem. Hope you can shed more light on the subject...

Thanks again
John W.

and either can be started with linux$ startx -- -layout <name> but not
both. The XF86Config file seems to be okay, in that when either display
is started it comes up on the correct card with the proper monitor.
Would seem to indicate that the layout, screen, and device sections of
the config file are okay.

I've got x set up with two diffrent video cards. would you like me to email you my config off list?
