Default toggle stereo without restarting X?

I'm using nvidia's 1.0-8178 drivers with Xorg-6.8.2 X server in Suse Linux 9.3.

Active stereo is enabled in my xorg.conf file as " Option "Stereo" "3" ". Is there a way to enable/disable stereo when needed, without restarting the X server?

This is not currently possible. Can you elaborate on why you'd want this functionality?

Default Re: toggle stereo without restarting X?

We've got an operator's node from which three rendering nodes are

I'm pretty sure that I do just what the original poster asks, here at our site.
On each of the rendering nodes, I've got two different Device sections
defined, one with Stereo "3" and one without the Stereo option at all. Then,
I've defined two different layout sections, one with the stereo device and one
without, named, surprisingly, StereoLayout and MonoLayout, respectively,
with the stereo layout being the default layout.

Then, with the stereo session running, I open up a text terminal Ctrl-F1,
for example, log in and "startx -- :1 -layout MonoLayout". Bingo! I've got
stereo on :0 and mono on :1. To switch between the two, I use the
chvt command.

I've attached three text files, StartXsessions.txt, ToggleVirtualTerminals.txt,
and XF86Config.txt, to which I had to append the .txt suffix in order to get
this post to accept the files as uploads. Just remove the ".txt" suffices to
use them.
