Description of problem:
[This bug should probably also be filed for Anaconda.]
People who want to use Xinerama have a hard time with the current tools. The
xfree86 config tool has no support to configure xinerama. And what's worse,
using the tool after setting up Xinerama by hand destroys the settings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Get machine with two disks
2.try to setup machine up for Xinerama
Actual Results: No Xinerama setup possible.
Expected Results: Recognze dual head video cards and the connected monitors.
New tab with xinerama options.
Not much in the generated XF86Config file has to change. Only more than one
Monitor, Device, and Screen section and a slightly change ServerLayout section.
DRI might have to be disabled.
