Re: NVidia and XRandR 1.2
This situation is becoming a real pain in the proverbial. In the last week I have encountered multiple segfaults in multiple applications as a result of Xinerama disabling XRandR.
So far I have discovered problems with the following:
Composite Window Managers - Totally Unusable on Xinerama Setups
MythTV - Segfaults unless ./configure --disable-xrandr is passed during the build
Torcs - Segfaults due to XRandR dependency.
These are just 3 problems I have discovered, I suspect the issue is far more widespread. Because of this it would make sense to add XRandR 1.2 support to the NVidia drivers as a priority so users can allow XRandR 1.2 to handle xinerama setups as opposed to enabling Xinerama in xorg.conf.
I request NVidia to take this matter seriously and provide support for the new XRandR 1.2 specification as a matter of urgency.
