[directfb-users] G450 two outputs (X primary, DirectFB secondary)
Hi, I'm looking for pointers in setting up a standalone media PC with an (KDE) desktop together with (at the same time!) DirectFB output on my television. Searching to the list archives I noticed that similar questions had been posted before, but I couldn't find any definitive answers. My goal is to set up a PC that runs KDE on the primary head of a Matrox G450 (to which other can connect through VNC) and that has Freevo on the secondary head, using DirectFB. I've patched a 2.4.24 kernel according to  and recompiled MPlayer. I'm able to display video with '-vo dfbmga' on the secondary head of my G450. But when I'm playing a video on the secondary head, the desktop on my primary head disappears! The primary head uses the Xfree86 mga driver on the first framebuffer (/dev/fb0). I've tried putting 'no-vt-switch' and 'no-vt-switching' in /etc/directfb, but no luck. Can anyone give me any pointers on how to have output on *both* heads of my videocard: a desktop on the first and simultaneous TV output on the second head? If it would involve running XDirectFB instead of the regular X11 it's no problem, but I haven't got a clue (or decent HOWTO) how to do that. I hope you can help me out. Also tips about running Freevo with DirectFB would be very welkome because I haven't been able to get that running with DirectFB (pygame error).  http://www.sci.fi/~syrjala/directfb/matrox-tv-out-howto Thanks!
