Re: multiple gdm

Thanks, just to be clear, I don't want one gnome session running on two
X servers. I want to run two different instances of gnome, each with its
own X server. The idea would be, if all is working, when I boot my
system, I'll get two gdm login screens, one for each monitor. I could
then have to log in twice, perhaps under different user names. It may
sound like a bad hack, but I'm just wondering if somehow I could
configure gdm to work of some specified display, like :0.0 or :0.1 or
something like that.

GNOME does not support multiple X11 screens. My understanding is that
recent versions of nvidia proprietary added XRandR as a feature, which
is what we require for multi monitor support.

        I'm not sure if this is the right mailing list to ask this
        question so
        forgive if I miss-posted...
        I have a system with two video cards, quadro K2200 and a K620
        and the
        nvidia propriatary driver will not configure a single desktop
        (X server)
        using both cards. It will configure two separate X servers or
        displays, one for each card. So I thought maybe I could run
        two versions
        of gdm, one for each X server or X display (I'm not sure the
        here.) :0.0 and :0.1 would be the -display syntax to use. This
        way I
        could have two separate sessions a bit like a KVM switch
        expect I'd have
        two monitors with one keyboard and mouse, and I would move my
        mouse over
        from one monitor to another to switch from one gnome session
        to another.
        so... how would I configure gdm to run on two X displays or
