Xorg issues with other X sessions and overclocking in arch


Hey, I'm having a bit trouble getting this working right.

I'm using mate desktop and lightdm
my .xinitrc only contains exec "mate-session"

Xorg file
http://pastebin.com/ipBMwT38

I can login to another X session fine, and start mate desktop with startx. This defeats the purpose of running a seperate X for games though...

steam launches fine from terminal, but my keyboard or mouse doesn't work.

Also in Xorg I enabled coolbits = 24 still can't use NVclock to adjust anything even though it detects my video card details fine.

Is all this true with only one X server running?*We need to distinguish between multiple X sessions causing problems and other things.

No, only when starting another X session.

Then your problams relate to using two sessions.

So, make another luser, another homedir, and start X a second time as your new luser. You will probably find everything works.
