Hi everybody.
I am going kinda-crazy with my box. I have two AMDGPU polaris 11 cards (RX460) and two identical monitors. Each card drives a separate monitor and it's connected on the DisplayPort output on the cards.
I am running kernel 4.9.16.

Both monitors/cards works fine when I login using my username through sddm:

When I start xorg using the 'startx' command, the second monitor attached to the second GPU is not detected anymore:

while, of course, the VGA is correctly seen by the system:

xrandr: cannot find output "DisplayPort-1-1"



How comes when I login in my unprivileged account via SDDM the system activates the second monitor, and not when I start X using startx?
Also, if I login on root, the system do not see the second monitor.... Is this a bug?
