SubjectMultiple monitors
Hi all,

Apologies in advance if this is a question that's already been answered
somewhere... I'm looking for a way to install multiple (or rather, two)
PCI/AGP cards in a machine and connect a monitor to each one, and use
them both *in console mode* - preferably with some nice way to say
'assign virtual console 2 to the first screen, and 5 to the second' -
that way you could have one tailing log files, showing 'top', whatever.
A quick search of the web/newsgroups turned up various patches that
looked ideal, but a closer inspection revealed that they either relied
on you having a Hercules mono card, or only applied against kernel
<0.99, or both... I was just wondering if anyone's thought
about/written a similar patch for more recent hardware/versions? I was
using a console Linux machine running BB (ASCII art demo - just to attract attention to our
stand today and was thinking it would be really neat to have one machine
driving several screens...
