SUMMARY: Dual Head on SB1000

Good morning all,

With thanks to the following people (Wolf, Ryan, Pablo, Reni, Howard, Paul,
Rick, Sean, and a couple more that I accidentally deleted the email), we were
able to get this customer up and running as requested.

In order to activate dual heads on a Sun machine with 2 video cards, you have
to Add the following to your /etc/dt/config/Xservers

:0   Local local_uid@console root /usr/openwin/bin/Xsun :0 +xinerama
-nobanner -dev /dev/fb0 defdepth 24  -dev /dev/fb1 defdepth 24

Restart X.

Although several people also made mention of Xinerama, this was not needed to
perform the function.

Thanks again, as always it's great to have you all as a resource.

ORIGINAL MESSAGE--------------------------

Good evening all,

I know this is most likely a simple question, unfortunately I must be
searching for the wrong thing, I cannot find an answer..

I have a customer who has a SB1000 and 2 video cards.  He wants to run dual
heads, and expand his desktop across the heads. Can someone please shed some
light on how to do this..

Thanks in advance.
