Re: Dual Monitors

I don't know what a gnome 4.0.1 is (probably Red Hat screwing with the number
to cause confusion) but here's my setup

Tyan S1836DLUAN with 2 PIIIs
256Megs RAM
Matrox G400Max
2 monitors (a 19in and a 17in)

Kernel 2.4.0 SMP
Xfree86 4.01c with driver downloaded from matrox.
Gnome whatever was current in the source trees when I FTPed a couple of weeks
Window manager Enlightenment.

Everything compiled from source.

Gnome was written to use single screens. I have gotten it to work with dual
screens using Enlightenment. It's not perfect but it works.

I can easily do the xinerama thing but I don't like it.
