Default Re: Support for Xorg without Xinerama extension ? (+ Meego on Nvidia card)

Unfortunatly no.
The decision to disable xinerama in Xorg is a uncommon decision that was inherited from Moblin project. When asking why this is the case, I was told it allowed to accelerate boot time. There is no benchmark AFAIK.

However Meego is very Intel centric (sse3 lock, no gfx drivers but intel's one) so it seems unrealistic to ask for re-enabling xinerama in upstream Xorg Meego.
