[Bug 383753] Re: Multiple users cannot run desktop effects simultaneously


intel/+bug/269509/comments/12> suggests that inability to get
acceleration on more than one X server simultaneously is a well-known
issue with Intel graphics. However, I'm still searching for a more
convincing record of this known issue.

In the meantime, <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=19493#c5>
does suggest hope for the future: a comment from 2009-03-20 says "With
KMS and the current driver, thanks to Dave Airlie, you'll get multiple
servers with DRI support". (I don't know what that means in detail,
other than that perhaps it'll be fixed by Karmic. NB,
bugs.freedesktop.org uses an unusual SSL CA, so you may need to
temporarily install the root CA from
<http://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=3> just to follow that link! Grr.)

®om, do you have Intel graphics hardware?
