X11, Window Managers Plymouth is a freedesktop.org project to create a flicker free graphical bootup system designed and developed by Red Hat and included in Fedora 10. Red Hat has been working on Xorg drivers and within the Linux kernel to improve and enhance the kernel mode support needed for Plymouth. Fedora 10 included support for many ATI cards and this is being developed further in Fedora 11 to cover Intel and Nvidia cards as well. Plymouth supports a flexible and powerful plug-in system which can be used to create Plymouth themes. Fedora includes several of them including a simple progress bar and the solar plugin. Now additional work is being done to improve many things and this will land up in Fedora 11 as well.

Then don't use Xinerama. You should be using XRANDR anyways because it does all that Xinerama did and much better. If you have bugs, file them with the X.org folks or your distribution and help make it better.

On my machine, XRANDR works fine and detects resolution correctly. I have a slightly older ATI card, so it's probably better supported. In any case, it can be done. No restarting the X server, no hacking around with xorg.conf. It Just Works (tm).
