ATI Dual Screen With X on Seperate Screens & Keyboards.
Hello, I'm a new guy on this forum, but I thought I'd ask a question thats been bugging me for ages.
I've searched online for help, but I don't think anyone has tried what I'm trying to do before (or I'm just not using the right keywords).
I'm looking to setup X to work with dual screens (one on VGA, the other on DVI). But I wish to have seperate login on both screens (each screen with their own keyboard)
So that 2 screens can be powered by one machine but used by two people simultaneously.
I'd like to do this
A) Because I'm a student and energy bills are high.
B) So that my friends can use my PC while i'm using it on a seperate screen so they don't interrupt my session
3.00 GHZ Pentium Dual Core
ATI Radeon 9250 (Using OpenSource driver ati)
Generic AC97 Sound card
160GB Hard Disk
My current Linux flavor is Debian Linux (Etch 4.0), and I use X.org 7.0.
Is what i'm suggesting even possible, and how would I go about implementing a solution?
I was thinking that USB keyboards could be configured in X to allow them to be used on the separate screen.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I have quite a bit of experience using Linux, so I should be able to understand any reply given.
