Description Dave Jones 2005-02-07 19:02:23 UTC
Trying to start up dual head with a config that begins..

Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Multihead layout"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" LeftOf "Screen1"
    Screen      1  "Screen1" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    Option      "Xinerama" "on"
    Option      "Clone" "off"

Doesnt power up the second head until I comment out the line..
Screen      1  "Screen1" 0 0 
and kill the X server with ctrl-alt-del.
It then starts up in cloned mode, but both heads are 'powered up'.
If I then change the config back, I get the desired behaviour.

This has been happening for quite some time now, and its annoying to
have to go through this every time I reboot.

No, really, this is a dupe.
