For the past week or so I've been toying around with multiple X servers and multiple "screens." I have an nVidia GeForce 5600 XT with s-video out, and have gotten it to work a second monitor without using another X server. When I say second monitor, I mean one that I'd place side-by-side with my regular computer monitor that I'd be able to drag X apps to and from. To do that, I added the following to my etc/X11/xorg.conf file:
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "Geforce fx 5600"
Option "nologo" "1"
Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" "30-50"
Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" "60"
Option "MetaModes" "1024x768, 1024x768;"
Option "TVStandard" "NTSC-M"
Now, what I want to do is have two X servers running, one for my regular desktop use (display :0.0) and one for my TV getting its feed from the s-video cable (display :1.0). That way I can play videos, games and display images on my television rather than on my uncomfortable computer chair
Has anyone got any ideas on how I can configure my xorg.com file to have my second X server (display :1.0) to display itself on my television? I was thinking of creating another xorg.conf file which would contain the code above, along with other X config file essentials, so that way when I start a second X server from Eterm, I can select that alternative X config file. This way, it would display itself on the TV. I thank all of you in advance for any input.
I'm using Slackware 10 with the default kernel and X.Org, by the way.
