Default Re: What are my options? Need three dual-link DVI outputs

As I originally said I am using XGL, IE the XGL x-server. IE when running top the process is Xgl for the x-server:

Code:
top - 20:45:19 up 37 days, 16:15, 14 users,  load average: 0.06, 0.04, 0.00
Tasks: 640 total,   1 running, 639 sleeping,   0 stopped,   0 zombie

My original setup is probably from 2007 as I said its old as I stuck to XGL for performance reasons. Looking at the log it is indeed 2007:

Code:
X Window System Version 7.2.0
Release Date: 22 January 2007
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.2
Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.19-gentoo-r2 x86_64

        Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org
        to make sure that you have the latest version.
Module Loader present
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
        (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
So XGL can actually use multiple videocards? I didn't think it could. Do you know anywhere that has some example configurations for multiple video cards?
