    Folks,

    I would like to attach a 2nd console screen + keyboard + mouse to a mac pro family Mac. Linux can do it with a 2nd graphics card, but I did not find anything for it on the Mac.

    I am not looking for VNC/ARD etc. but rather to have two full consoles on a single computer.

    Anybody?

    kvm switchs and different usernames?

    I'm not quite sure I understand what you want to do.

    sounds like basically turning 1 computer into 2 computers (kinda)

    Mac OS X does not have certain features that Linux does because Linux != Mac OS X.

    VNC, ARD etc. is not a physical console screen - the question pertains to how to start WindowManager etc. on a physical 2nd monitor.
