I haven't had the time to try your driver yet, but I would like to
respond to the statement above. I currently have a 'normal' kind of
dual-head setup (as can be seen from the xorg.conf I attached to my
original post). If the pixmap should not matter at all, then how should
I set it up? Can I specify a separate pixmap depth for each card/driver?
Now it's just a server-wide flag I'm setting.
