[directfb-users] How to use multiple XDirectFBs with linux ruby kernel?
I would like to be able to run a regular (non framebuffer) XFree86 server and an XDirectFB server, each on a different graphics card, and have both servers appear on the screen at the same time. I've compiled the linux ruby kernel (version 2.6.7-1) and booted it. I've checked that it initializes both of my framebuffer devices and creates 2 dummy virtual consoles. I don't understand how to tell XDirectFB which virtual console or terminal to use so that it doesn't take over both displays. (I know which framebuffer device corresponds to the correct card) I've tried adding and removing "no-vt-switch" and "vt-switching' from my directfbrc config file. When I have only one of them, or neither, XDirectFB fails to be able to access the appropriate framebuffer. When I have both statements, XDirectFB starts, but displays an error message that it can't access display and sleeps for a moment and trys again. (At this point, my mouse & keyboard don't work on the console displaying XDirectFB's output so I couldn't get an exact copy of the error message) What should I try next? Is this possible? :) __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo! Mail Address AutoComplete - You start. We finish. http://promotions.yahoo.com/new_mail
