    RE: Second X Server fglrx problems
    well, i tried your advice and went and uninstalled all graphics drivers, and fglrx, then reinstalled fglrx, but nothing doing. ah well.... i just wish this would be fixed soon. I've been eagerly awaiting the next kernel update, but it looks as if openSUSE may have given up on 11.0 and are concentrating on 11.1. Which would mean I will need to compile it myself. Always fun :D and yeah, the `code` block really kills the forum geez

    Second X Server fglrx problems
    So, I have been researching and scouring the internet for ages now, but seem to only find people with a case not so similar to mine. I have openSUSE 11.0 and 2.6.25.20 pae linux kernel. The problem I am having is with the fglrx drivers. It was hard to figure out if this is the right forum category to post in, but whatever. The problem is, the first and original X server that spawns on my computer works just fine, 3D acceleration and all that good stuff, and is quite nice. I am having troubles, however, spawning a second X server, whether by the command: [code]xinit -- :1[/code] or [code]X :1[/code] and etc. When I add the -probeonly flag, it shows: [code]X.Org X Server 1.4.0.90 Release Date: 5 September 2007 X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0 Build Operating System: openSUSE SUSE LINUX Current Operating System: Linux linux 2.6.25.20-0.4-pae #1 SMP 2009-06-01 09:57:12 +0200 i686 Build Date: 28 July 2008 10:14:56PM Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org to make sure that you have the latest version.

I can start x, so somewhere along the line it works out. That is the part that confuses me. I use kde, so I know that Xorg is spawned by kdm. Is it possible that kdm passes certain flags that make it work? If so, is there a way to find out what it passes? And if not, does anyone have any clue why it can spawn a first X server but not a second? Thanks, wolf1oo
