multiseat on lap top

kdmrc doesn't cares about xephyr.
it depends on the xorg.conf.
I don't use xephyr but I imagine that it creates a virtual card which in turn is used the same way one configures multiseat with more then one cards.
external gpu might be ugly, but you'll gain better performance.

I am aware of the necessity of hub for in and mouse.
The only thing I have to overcome is setting a conf besides kdmrc or xephyre to use a single graphic card with two output port for monitors which almost always laptops are equipped with this kind of cards.
So I need settings for such cards. As I know the chest and xephyre are the most common xservers which work on top of another xserver. As they are capable of using a graphic card as many as output port of a card, the solution rest on using one of those programme.
Once I read a threat on a famous developer site from a brithis guy on the subject. But he refused to give me the settings he had.
As it is a painful job I did not dear to start it.
It is why I am asking for help.
An external graphic card is a solution but is a little ugly. Having a hardware beside a laptop does not sound nice.
