ok, heres my deal so far.
i searched the forum and found out information on how i was able to set up my dual-head Radeon 7000 to use both heads to achieve a dual-display setup. i am running Gnome 2.4.0 and ive heard that Gnome doesnt natively support a dual-display setup, and i understand that. ive also heard that when i do this, its loading up two instances of Gnome, one for each monitor, again i know what this means. here's where my questions come into play.
when i click the log-out button it just crashes Gnome and kills my x-server (i think. it goes back to my black command screen, is that the correct term?) has anyone else done this with Gnome before? if so, is this something out of the ordinary or does this just come with the territory? also, i dont know if this is from the premature exiting of Gnome or something, but my Multimedia Keys have to be re-set after i go back into Gnome.
i thought it might be good to say that i only have 128mb of ram and usually the system monitor is reading 120/124mb of ram is being used up. could the low ram be aiding the crashes when i push the log-out button? im going to be getting some more soon (32mb, it isnt much but itll help a little
i was also wondering if it was possible to make the second monitor's Gnome use a different Desktop folder (like Desktop2) to store it's contents. When i put stuff onto it's desktop and i restart they dont show up on any desktop but are still in the desktop folder.
