Description Nakai 2001-07-06 05:47:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010316

Description of problem:
We install RHL7.1 into i810 chip machine.

When we do 'startx', it's OK.
When we do 'startx -- :1', it's dead.

On RHL7 or before, it can run :0 and :1
display simultaneously with Ctrl+Alt+F7 and Ctrl+Alt+F8.
This should be a bug.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.startx and Ctrl+Alt+F1
2.startx -- :1

And you'll find X is running for :0 and not for :1

try Xconfigurator --preferxf4 --nodri

Does that fix the problem?
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-01-25 02:53:16 EST
I can start two X servers no problem on 4 machines here.  I understand that
the i81x boards are not capable of doing so however.
