Description Thomas Eckert 2004-02-04 11:07:06 UTC
in a multi-head X11 config (x11-base/xfree-4.3.0-r3), no xinerama lyx crashes
        BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) id: 127926430
if started on the 2nd head (:0.1). it works fine on the first (:0.0).
(identical graphic cards for both heads)

What video card(s) are you using ?
Are you using xforms or qt ?

I have no xinerama/multihead to test this on but here's a reference:
Comment 2 Thomas Eckert 2004-02-11 13:38:22 UTC
was using xforms-1.0. after re-emerging with
  USE="qt" emerge lyx
it works fine on both heads.

should we add a pkg_postinst() note like:
  ewarn "If you have a multi-head setup not using Xinerama you can only use lyx"
  ewarn "on the 2nd head if using qt (maybe due to a xforms bug) -> bug #40392."

btw: video-cards: 2xG450DH, using the 2nd port of each (due to DVI-output

Added an advisory of it to lyx ebuild.  Thanks for reporting.
