I have an ATI FireGL X1 in my computer. I'd like to set up a second X server, with a separate keyboard and mouse (actually, I plan to use a KVM switch, but you get the point). The reason I want to do this is so that I can run "Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory" on one X server, and ssh to the game host on a nearby (but not nearby enough) computer via the second X server (plus read my email, etc.). CTRL-ALT-F<1..5> causes the X server to get all pissed off at me, so that's not an option.
I think I can figure out getting a second X server running, but
the mystery is this: first, how do I get the computer to realize
that it has two USB keyboard and two USB mice, and second, how
do I bind one set of input devices to each X server? I know this
is possible, but I have no idea where to begin.
The short answer, is that this is not possible currently. The 2.6.x kernel has the kernel side support to do things like this, but I've no idea if anything is missing or not, and haven't heard of anyone who has gotten it to work.
Other than that, someone made a very ugly hack a few years ago for specific video hardware (obviously not FireGL X1), which involved modifying the X server and/or video driver source code, and also the kernel, and made a hodge-podge hack solution that worked for them. If you're using the FireGL X1 for 3D games, then you're using proprietary drivers, and you don't have the source code.
So this is not likely going to work at all, at least for the time being.
