Default Re: [PATCH] "faked" Xinerama information for a triple-head TwinView setup

It looks like you compiled the Xserver with wrong/local prefix (/usr/local). This sould be ok but might cause some trouble when it comes to big packages like X.
Try to create /usr/local/var/log/ and see if it works.
Check "./configure --help" in the Xserver's source.
"./configure --prefix=/usr" sould work.
Also check if there are other special prefix options and add it to the command.
Try these options:
localstatedir=DIR modifiable single-machine data [PREFIX/var]
--> "--localstatedir=/var"
sysconfdir=DIR read-only single-machine data [PREFIX/etc]
--> "--sysconfdir=/etc"

You need to get/install the source package for Xserver (1.2.0?).
Download the patch from my last post.
Go into the source dir (/usr/src/xserver...?).
Try "patch -p1 --dry-run < /path/to/my/patch.txt"
If there are no errors do "patch -p1 < /path/to/my/patch.txt"
Compile/Install the source (./configure, make, make install?), also see above.

Don't expect too much. Depending on your video cards you might get worse performance or instability.
I tried it with two Nvidia Cards. A new PCI-E and an old PCI one. The result: I lost openGL and most acceleration (slow rendering and redraws).

Good Luck!
