Re: first display on twinview
Ok, I switched off Xinerama and started running TwinView. The final straw was slow 100% CPU intensive screensavers with XGL/Compiz.
All that had to be done was plug in the LCD through its analog port and put a DVI->VGA adapter on the gfx card. No more primary display worries. Now I just have a DVI capable LCD running on analog. Oh well.
