#216 Lockup: Xinerama with Voodoo3 2000 and 3000

Feature Suggestion
Other (69)

X 4.0.1
Kernel 2.2.15
Mandrake 7 Distro

Voodoo3 2000 PCI
Voodoo3 3000 PCI

Locks up all the time, after a lockup I can still move my mouse around but only on the screen that it was currently on during the lockup. My keyboard stops responding too.

It seems to happen mostly when I'm moving windows between displays or when a window is spanned accross both displays. I've left it running all night and it didnt hang, so it hangs when theres some type of activity going on, even though I had a screensaver running all night.

I know the cards both have their own IRQ, the dual head setup works just fine in Windows98 so I assume its a X bug.

Any fixes for this? or if its a new bug, I hope someone can fix it for me :)

    We don't support multihead 3D on any of the cards except the dual head
    Matrox. (Because the card handles the multihead feature) It's on the TODO
    list to be fixed some time in the future.

    perhaps I wasn't clear enough. I'm only attempting to run in 2D modes. All I want is to be able to run Gnome, KDE, etc.. I don't care about multi-head 3D.

    Multihead 2D isn't supported either, yet.
