I'm surprised there's not already a thread about this in the forum...
When I'm using fglrx two X-Servers are started which both consume the same amount of memory, though one of them seems to be doing nothing. Killing the second one (higher Pid) does'nt cause any problems, so I wonder why it's started? I've only got one Display, so I have no use for the second X Server. Googling only brought up this.
So is this normal behaviour (and is this going to be fixed?) or is there something wrong with my xorg.conf (http://pastebin.com/m571a94a7)?
Well, what ever that second X Server is started for, I don't want/need it and it should'nt be started in the first place. I dunno how common this is, but I'm obviously not the only one who's experiencing this.
Edit: Btw, when I'm using the radeon-driver there's only one X server running.
Is fglrx a driver for the X Window System? If so then why doesn't it support multiple X Servers like the X Window System does?
The issue is that it does support multiple servers, however the problem is that just by virtue of installing and running the driver you wind up with 2 X Servers all the time, even when you didn't intend to.
