Default Dual indepent Displays with seperate I/O

I want to configure to indepent displays. Here is what i'm trying to accomplish.

Two sets of USB keyboards and mice and wwo displays

I want:

Kb1 + M1 ->display 1

Kb2 + M2 ->display 2

they must be completely independent.

I've managed to configure to independent displays, but they still share I/O.

Can someone throw in some input?

Much thanks

Default Re: Dual indepent Displays with seperate I/O

This is not possible in combination with the nvidia drivers as the nvidia drivers can only 'split' a videocard when both screens are used in the same X session. Further X doesn't offer a way to assign a different mouse and keyboard combination to different screens.
The only way it might be possible is to add an extra videocard and use a different X server on both cards but you only have one card.

Note that cards from lets say Ati and Matrox don't have the limitation that it can only be split in the same X session. Cards from these vendors appear as two pci devices in the system and because of that they can be used in two different X servers.
