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

I suppose nouveau developers will make multiseat possible (if it's not available already).

That's a relief to hear.

However, it brings back my original problem: Exiting any of the X servers while any of the other X servers (or itself) is in the foreground crashes the machine entirely. This was not the case with older versions of the driver. "nvidia-173" (ubuntu parlance) exhibits this problem. This happens with different video cards even. I tried submitting a debug dump, but there seems to be no interest in this. I wonder if I'm the only one with this problem.
