I have a couple of Dell Inspiron 3050 PCs with "Intel HD Graphics". The
machines have two video outputs (Displayport and HDMI) and WILL drive
two monitors. However, I have not been able to establish separate X
screens. Here is a little more detailed information about the hardware:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor
Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display (rev 0e) (prog-if 00 [VGA
Subsystem: Dell Device 0703
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 91
Memory at d0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
Memory at c0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
I/O ports at f080 [size=8]
Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: i915
Operating systems include CentOS 7, Ubuntu Mate 15.10 and Linux Mint
Mate 17.3 although I do not think that is a limitation.
Can someone offer a definitive NO which will put me out of my misery - I
will fill one of the video sockets with epoxy and never connect two
monitors Or a "yes it is possible" in which case I will continue banging
my head against the problem.
