I haven't watched battlebots in a while, I forgot how much I like it. You think you'd get tired of watching robots bash into each other, but... :)

Playing with dualhead. I can get 2 consoles going, but when I start X I lose the second one. Xinerama sucks, but maybe it's been fixed in 4.1.0.

You can't have a console in one and X in the other, if that's what you want.

If you want 2 Xs instead, make sure to use
startx -- +xinerama
Which does dual-heading with a G400 and TNT1 for me. I'll throw up my XF86Config if you want it.

How did you get 2 consoles? The dual headed console bit of the howto was useless to me. :P

Bah, there has to be some way to get a console on the second head :P

The only part of the HOWTO you need is that part about con2fb. I just ran that on fb1 and it worked. I couldn't get it to change the resolution, but since it's a small crappy monitor I didn't really care.
