SubjectRe: Multiple monitors
Hi,

Only now I read the whole tread about 'Multiple monitors' :))
For console mode you can try my patch for mingetty (see
http://ylabs.igreconline.com is working very well.. for example at my home
I run a fbtv on another monitor and in another monitor I work) or you can
try fbgetty . And for X use xinerama .

Adrian Stanila
P.S. is working for all combination of video cards. :))
