mx 440 xtacy dual head and cli
I was wondering if any one knows how i can get my slak box to use move tty3-6 to my second monitor or if i can even do that.

Ive tired to get it to work with the fbset programs but that didnt work.
I also want to be able to have X on my larger CRT and a concole on my smaller CRT. Ive tired a couple of different setups but i have not been able to get it done.

Thankx in advance.

Twinview cli is impossible atleast on nvidia hardware. The only cards I know that support it are cards from Matrox. (not 100% sure)

ok so you are saying that haveing X on one CRT and my concole on the other is not possible or using both monitors for CLI?

Those things aren't possible. The only case you get two screens is in X. (on nvidia hardware)

Well there are some things that can be done is software to emulate this, but thunderbird is right, in a traditional sense, you cannot have X running on one screen and a console on the other.

But if your use a program like ggiterm on the second monitor, and tell your window manager its a dead zone ( thats a goofy thing many popular windowmanagers can do), then you have the same affect :)
