Default Two X servers, one on hdmi and the other on vga.

Hi

I'm trying to configure xorg.conf to be able to start two X servers. One (HDMI) is connected to my Panasonic PX80 television and the other (VGA) to my HP w2207 monitor.

I want to run XBMC on the televison at the same time I can use the computer with the monitor. XBMC will be controlled by Sony Ericsson phone (via bluetooth HID) and the normal keyboard and mouse is used to the other monitor. I've attached tha outpu from nvidia-bug-report. You can see the xorg.conf I use in there. I've used to test to start the second screen via HDMI (-layout hdmi). It always report "No Screens found" and the X server dies. what am I doing wrong? Is what I'm trying to do possible?

I use the following command when I'm trying to start the second Xserver:

sudo Xorg -allowMouseOpenFail -isolateDevice PCI:0:18:0 -layout hdmi -logverbose 9 -verbose 9 -novtswitch -sharevts :1

HW
CPU: AMD64 5050e
Main board: ASUS M2N68-VM, built-in GeForce 7050PV

SW
Ubuntu Jaunty (64-bit)

Thank you!

Default Re: Two X servers, one on hdmi and the other on vga.

That sort of configuration is not supported.
