  • radeonhd + x1650 pro + dual head

    I am attempting to get a dual head setup to work with my ATI x1650 pro and the radeonhd driver. My xorg.conf (below) is very simple (I have been working from http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonhd)
    and while both monitors do come up they are clones of each other. I want the setup to be static so I have been attempting to get all of the config into the xorg.conf but attempting to run things like:
    Code:
    xrandr --output DVI-I_1 --right-of DVI-I_2
    does not seem to do anything either.

    Does anyone have a good resource for me to read through or some helpful hints on how to disable the cloning?

    Thanks.

    xorg.conf:
    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
            Identifier   "monitor_0"
            Option  "RightOf" "DVI-I_2"
            # also tried:   
            #   Option  "RightOf" "monitor_1"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Monitor"
            Identifier   "monitor_1"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
            Identifier  "device_0"
            Driver      "radeonhd"
            BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
            Option  "monitor-DVI-I_1" "monitor_0"
            Option  "monitor-DVI-I_2" "monitor_1"
            Option  "RDROutputOrder" "DVI-I_1"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "screen_0"
            Device     "device_0"
            DefaultDepth     24
    EndSection

    Which version of the Xserver are you using?

    I am seeing similar problems.

    Build ID: xorg-x11-server 1.3.0.0-42.fc8
    ...
    (WW) RADEONHD(0): Option "LeftOf" is not used
    ...
    (WW) RADEONHD(0): Option "RightOf" is not used

      Version

      I am attempting to set this up on a Ubuntu box. The xserver-xorg-core is 1.3.0.0.dfsg-12ubuntu8.3 The radeonhd driver I downloaded and compiled it from source. It has a module version of 1.1.0.

        First off, try RadeonHD git code or at least v1.1... 1.0 is VASTLY outdated...

          Version

          I have updated that post as I wasn't 100% sure on the version number. It is 1.1.0. My issues was that I wasn't specifying my outputs properly.

          xrandr had the following outputs:
          DVI-I_1/digital
          DVI-I_1/analog
          DVI-I_2/digital
          DVI-I_2/analog

          but since my card only has 2 outputs I thought that the '/digital' and '/analog' was not part of the output identifier. I changed my xorg.conf to have the following:

          Code:
          Section "Device"
                  Identifier  "device_0"
                  Driver      "radeonhd"
                  BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
                  Option  "monitor-DVI-I_1/analog" "monitor_0"
                  Option  "monitor-DVI-I_2/analog" "monitor_1"
                  Option  "RDROutputOrder" "DVI-I_1/analog"
          EndSection
          And now I am getting non-cloned screens under xorg, but still cloning on the virtual terminals, which I can live with.
