Hope this is in the right section, trying to get a multiseat setup going. Kde 4.8.0

Most of these multiseat configs are semi old, but here is what i have gotten running, got both screens running (seperate cards) seperate sessions of X (easy to do threw gui configs) 2 mice and keyboards. all working but linked together. then i setup the xorg.conf in the multiseat config mannor. and this split my mouse/kdb to the correct monitor, but the 2nd monitor never turns on.

I think this is a kdmrc config problem, and no matter how i set that up it always stalls trying to start kde.

any direction would be helpful..

I think it is better to use /dev/by-id so it will be input based.
btw, do you have any delays on the mouse movement? are you using wireless keyboard/mouse?

one option is pulseaudio.

I think there is no possibility with alsa and one card, I think that right course if action is getting another sound card and using .asoundrc to define it.

I use this /etc/asound.conf.

I'm still working out whether I need the control sections. I've got a feeling it makes things appear in application drop-down lists for selecting devices.
The Kitchen seat uses device PlugK and the Lounge seat uses device PlugL. Applications that use the default device use PlugA. The 5.1 speakers are in the Kitchen and the side L&R are in the Lounge for the TV.

I'm playing with the Plugupmix device to create 5.1 from stereo audio files.

did you got it to work, I'm going to re setup my multiseat this time with a usb sound for the other seat and I'm looking for a way to "attach" the sound cards to the seat without using pulseaudio.

any success on the matter?
