Xinerama & Mozilla


I recently started using Xinerama on my mdk9 system with a Matrox G450 dual head card. Everything is working great except that Galeon/Mozilla freezes up occasionally. This never happened before Xinerama. Has anyone had this problem and been able to solve it? Any advice would be welcome.

I don't run xinemera, but I would think that maybe you should look instead on problems with your windows manager (which you didn't mention). Most WM's are still only beginning to incorporate xinemera support (if they've even noticed it), and i would presume that mozilla has nothing to do with it....its just another window that should hopefully be handled correctly by the wm (w/ xinemera). I could of course be very wrong... just shooting around ideas.

*Maybe its b/c you handle mozilla/galeon fullscreen (?) and not any other apps...that you havent noticed this w/ other things...again pointing to WM. I, again, have no idea what I'm talking about.

/me is a little slow...xinerama, not xinemera.

Thanks for the response. I should have mentioned that I'm using Fluxbox 0.1.14 which has Xinerama support as far as I know. It didn't occur to me that it could be a wm problem since I'm only having trouble with Galeon/Mozilla and everything else is working fine. I'll play around with some of the other wms and see what happens.
