    This is very odd. Are you guys sure it's not something your distribution is doing?

    I've used fglrx 8.40 and higher on both Ubuntu Gutsy, Hardy, and opensuse 10.2 and have never seen this.

    Since when I'm replacing Driver "fglrx" with "radeon" there's only one X Server beeing started I'm pretty sure it's got something to do with fglrx.

    What's the output of 'ps ax | grep Xorg' when you have both x servers running?

    Code:
     7182 pts/1    S+     0:00 grep --colour=auto Xorg
    I guess this is quite meaningless as the grep only finds itself.

    maybe a ps ax | grep /usr/bin/X would be more useful?
    Code:
     5405 tty7     Ss+    7:50 /usr/bin/X -br -novtswitch -nolisten tcp :0 vt7 -auth /var/run/xauth/A:0-NziwZT
     5472 tty7     S+     0:00 /usr/bin/X -br -novtswitch -nolisten tcp :0 vt7 -auth /var/run/xauth/A:0-NziwZT
     7208 pts/1    S+     0:00 grep --colour=auto /usr/bin/X

    I don't have two X servers running... I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 and Catalyst 8.5.

    Odd, maybe it's a distribution-specific thing?

    Results from mine:
    Code:
     5779 tty7     Ss+    8:02 /usr/bin/X :0 -br -audit 0 -auth /var/lib/gdm/:0.Xauth -nolisten tcp vt7
    28336 pts/0    R+     0:00 grep /usr/bin/X



    [edit] I'M COMPLETELY WRONG. DISREGARD THE ABOVE. I DO HAVE TWO INSTANCES OF X RUNNING. ID-10-T ERROR ON THE ABOVE POST.

    Just wanted to confirm that I have the same problem using Gentoo and Fedora 8.
    Very nasty indeed, especially when I see the memory consumption of both servers (70 MB!).

    what surprises me, is that this issue surprises!

    it's much that this is a known issue... and what surprises me even more, is that at ATi, they didn't know it!!!

    Interesting. I think there is a bugzilla ticket open on this already bug didn't realize how many people are seeing it.

    OK, looks like #702 - would you folks be able to add your system specifics to the ticket ?
