Running two XServer
I am using two graphic adapters in my system. A Geforce TI4200 with Twinview and 2 monitors and a second mx420 for tvout.
My wish is to run freevo or mplayer on tv, and be able to work at the same time.
I tested following configurations:
a) Twinview activated on the 4200, the mx as second screen without xfree xinerama.
Pro: ability to use tv and monitors independently.
Contra: The nvidia driver xinerama gets deactivated and all fullscreen applications use both monitors.
b) XFree Xinerama for all three video outputs.
Pro: Fullscreen apps work again.
Contra: SLOW and some windows start on the TV
c) Running 2 XServer simultaneous:
Pro: nvidia xinerama extensions should work again in twinview. TV fully independent.
Contra: Works only in theory
c) would be the best solution, but in practise follwing happens
would start the monitor XServer
X :1 -xf86config /etc/X11/XF86config-4.tv
the XServer for the tv. Now following happens: Both monitors turn black as long as the tv XServer is active. Switching back to the first XServer console (CTRL+ALT F7) activates the first XServer again, but now the tv turns black.
Anyone a idea the run both X simultaneous, without using a patched kernel or xfree like the backstreet ruby kernel?
Thank you for your patience,

How about a single X server driving both cards but not in Xinerama?
Would that not solve your problem of windows on the wrong screen?
