Sorry if this is an FAQ (if not, probably should be).
I have ATI radeon X300SE card with DVI and vga output. My monitor is
connected to analog vga output at (1440x900) and DVI is connected to
panasonic plasma at 1280x720. I setup the card in xorg.conf to display
two desktops which are side by side and can go from one to the other by
moving the mouse. Now, if I try to start MythFrontend on either of the
screens, it does not display anything. Here are the log entries when it
is starting up, I never see the Myth frontend.
