I wonder if someone knows if it is possible to merge two separate X servers in a master/slave configuration so they form a single desktop. It would be useful too if all keyboards and mices from both X servers can be used as input.
The main usage would be to use my laptop at home as a secondary monitor for my desktop.

Since I installed Lenny on my laptop six months ago, I have this weird keyboard bug. With Caps Lock on, I get all letters in uppercase EXCEPTING the C and E letters.
And more: with Caps on and pressing Shift, all letters are lowercase excepting C and E, which this time are in uppercase.

In X this doesn't happen, only on the console.

I already tried kbd-config leaving the kernel default layout, US layout, and all Spanish variations (I use Spanish standard). None of these changes solve the bug.

And this it is not a hardware bug. I copied this Debian installation to my desktop PC and the problem is still there [both are 64-bit processors with nVidia chipset]. It didn't happen with a previous Mandriva installation on the laptop.

Suggestions are welcome :)
