IRIX 6.5.20m on Octane R12k with ESSI and ESI here. (== IMPACTSR)

I have problems too. OpenGL applications don't work on the secondary
screen. The windows are simply empty. I was told by a SGI Guru that this
is normal. OpenGL on all heads requires some multi pipe things (?) that
the Octane doesn't support.

The Xserver crashes when I start some OpenGL applications on the
secondary screen. This is really annoying and I still haven't found a
solution for this.
