Default Re: Xinerama, with acceleration

1.0-7174 doesn't support GLX with Xinerama.

ConnectedMonitor can *NOT* be used to force a display device to be the primary/secondary/etc display device. Attempts to do so will not work, and potentially confuse the driver resulting in unexpected results.
quite to the contrary, it works to set the display device wonderfully. I have been using the connected monitor option to flipflop dvi and vga defaults for over a year, and haven't had a problem. otherwise, it would treat my flat pannel as the secondary display, and not as the primary.

I did, and it had no effect.

I'm trying to find that right now.

As zander noted, you can't use GLX with Xinerama in 1.0-7174. Upgrading to 1.0-8178 should resolve that problem

Thanks,
Lonni
