We have 12 LCDs and we want to present them all to users as a single
unified screen so that users can move windows between LCDs. We have 3
computers with 4 VGA outputs each. What I want to do is to use dmx server
to connect 4 X windows from each computer  to display them all as a single
screen. I did try it last year with xorg-6.9.0 and it worked. And now we
want to use new xorg with new nv driver for our new nvidia graphics cards.
If I can't use dmx with new xorg, is there anyway for me to connect X
windows from different computers. Kindly give me your advice
Thank you,
