2 diff. xservers and diff. resolutions

2 diff. xservers and diff. resolutions

Post by F. Javier Coba » Tue, 15 Feb 2000 04:00:00



Hi,

sorry if this is a novice question, i have searched a lot and found
nothing  that fully solve it.

we are developing an application that will have 2 monitors connected.
That will be in Solaris 2.6 most likely.

Two different resolutions and two different Xservers ( 'Xsun' for the
m64 g-card at 1280x1024 and 'Xtsi' for a 'Raptor 2K' g-card at 2048x2048
)

It has to be like that, for the moment, since AFAIK 'Xsun' does not
support the Raptor card and 'Xtsi' does not support the m64 card. Both
work fine if i start one each time as independent Xservers.

Also working when launched as two independent xservers at the same time:

     openwin -dev /dev/fb1  ( X --> /opt/X11R6/bin/Xtsi ) [The raptor
card]
     Xsun :1 -dev /dev/fb0  (the m64 card)

only problem is with keyboard and mouse, that i suppose has to be
disabled on one of the 'xservers'

i have read of X11R6.4 or Xsun in Solaris 2.7 with the '-xinerama'
option. Does X11R6.4 with xinerama option also work OK in Solaris 2.6
??.

I have also tested another commercial SW that works on several monitors
as if they were only one, but unfortunately does not support the Raptor
card.

-------------- The question:
is there any solution to start two different 'xservers' (with two diff.
resolutions) at the same time as if they were the same 'xserver'  ???.
They should pass any mouse/keyboard event to the other one when needed.

Thank you for any suggestion.

Sun's X11R6.4 is only available for Solaris 7 & 8, and it's Xinerama
feature requires both frame buffers to have the same set of "visuals"
(i.e. both cards must be 8-bit, 24-bit or 8+24) - but it won't help you
at all if there is no support in Xsun for your frame buffer, because
it's just an extension to Xsun's existing multi-monitor support.

1. Diff consoles, diff resolutions?

        How do I go about setting different resolutions for different

        I couldn't find any info in the FAQ's, or any similar questions
in the c.o.l groups, so. . . maybe it's not yet possible?

        Thanks in adv. . .
