Unhappy Does fglrx not work with multiple X servers


For some reason I can't run multiple x servers

My first X server starts gdm->gnome fine.
Then I go to run
$startx -- :2
and get an error, posted at the bottom



Does anyone know what the cause of this error is? or even what the error is trying to tell me?



If anyone else has fglrx and can use multiple X servers, please leave a message with:
-your distro
-x86/x64
-xorg version
-fglrx version
-anything else that might be important


My system specs are:
Debian squeeze (testing) x64
All packages done through aptitude, with exception of linux-source and fglrx-source
Radeon 4870 1Gig

All packages as up to date as possible
Have always had this error, with at least last 4 fglrx versions

$startx -- :2 (as root)

I've never heard from anyone who's gotten this working with fglrx, though the open source drivers handle it just fine here.

thanks adam

Since the reason I want this is to have 3D games run on my second x server, the open source drivers will not suffice.

Do you know if anyone else has had the same type of error while attempting to get multiple X servers working with fglrx?

I've seen many people on many forums get many different errors when trying to run multiple X servers with fglrx :-)

EDIT: As for 3D games, I happily play ut2004 and doom3 with an HD4850 with the open source drivers.
