Default Re: One opengl context across multiple cards using Xinerama

Xinerama is a general X server extension that abstracts two screens to look like one; apps shouldn't need to do anything special.

Basically: internally, the X server creates two drawables, one for each card, and deals with putting them in the right place on each internal screen and drawing to both when the client does drawing to the one abstracted drawable.

So what you need to know is: from a client's point of view, Xinerama should be transparent and both screens should look like one.
