Default Re: Can't I run 2 X servers on the one card

Now what you are asking for is running two X-Servers concurrently, but
only one of the two X-Servers "owns" (both outputs of) the video card at
a time and where you can switch between the two X-Server with
ALT+CTRL+F7/F8. Means, you can see the output of both X-Servers
at the same time. To my knowledge, this feature has never been officially
supported by nvidia but worked flawlessly for many years - at least for me it
still works with 185.18.14 on a GTX260. Can you please post an
nvidia-bug-report.log? (I'd recommend to open a now thread) Maybe
your setup just needs some fine tuning.
I'm trying to keep a "standard" Lucid system, where 173 is the current driver. Naturally, if I can't fix it there, I'll start playing around with newer versions.

Thanks for the idea Bernhard. Strangely, I tried to reproduce the bug running X by hand, but it is a little hard to do so. I managed to capture a nvidia-report log when the problem was happening (X sessions with gnome in them). I'm opening another thread with the bug. Thanks a lot!
