Dear All,

I am trying to understand multi display support  with wayland/weston
in any of the following mode with drm-backend and ivi-shell. Planning
to use TI soc (Jacinto 6, DRA7XX) with linux to test multi display

It would be great help if you could give inputs/information/suggest on this.

1. Extended Mode.
- This seems to be available from guide from TI [1]. I assume this
will be running one instance of weston with desktop-shell.
- Is this posible with ivi-shell?

2. Clone Mode.
- Is this possible? How to configure this?

3. Independent Driving.
- Is this possible?
- Are two instance of weston possible?

Anyone here tried wayland/weston with multiple display in any of the
above configuration?

Thanking you all in advance.
