2 monitors, 2 video cards, multiple terminals?
I'm fairly new to Linux but I'm learning quickly. I'm running dual-boot with WinXP and Debian Stable.
I have an ATI AIW 9800 Pro AGP card (which works fine) and a Matrox Mystique PCI card hooked up to a 3DFX Diamond Monster 3D Voodoo 1 PCI card (which I haven't yet got working. I installed these after my initial implementation of Debian onto my computer so I don't know if it's automatically detecting them or not. I'm guessing no. Are there drivers for these in Debian already by any chance? If so how then do I activate my second video card setup? But I digress). I'm wondering if it's possible to use both video cards to display different terminals in any scenario: like 2 command lines, 1 command line and one X, 2 X desktops within a single login, or even 2 X's with different logins. Everyone seems to want to get a single extended X desktop spanning 2 monitors which is useful, but I'm more interested in having seperate terminals displayed in 2 monitors. Is this possible?
