  • Help with radeon-git, X700 and dual head needed...

    I hope it is allowed to link to another forum, but some guy has these problems and couldn't find a solution yet.

    Any ideas?
    Is there something special with ATI Mobility X700?

      Does:
      Option "R4xxATOM" "TRUE"
      Help?

        That was the solution! I'm very impressed and happy.
        The picture is there, no black screen on LVDS. Still a clone, but I will try how to handle this.

        Btw. What does this option mean?

          Make sure you are using 6.12.2 or newer. There was a bug in the crtc routing in the r4xx atom code.

          It uses atombios for modesetting on r4xx hardware.

            Ok, I'm using 6.12.2.99.
            If the bug should be fixed in this version, that isn't so.

              It was fixed prior to 6.12.2, so it is fixed in the version you are using.

              What's the problem you are seeing?

                What I want:
                VGA-0 1680x1050
                LVDS 1280x800

                VGA-0 should be left of LVDS

                I tried a lot with xrandr, --left-of --pos..., but sometimes the positioning is wrong or VGA-0 shows: Out of range.

                It would be nice if somebody can help me.

                  make sure you have a big enough frame buffer reserved for the size of the desktop you want. You may need to add a virtual line to your config.

                    How do I reserve Framebuffer? Virtual line is activated. It seems to be a problem that both screens has a different resolution. I just can activate the small resolution at the big screen (but xrandr -q tell me that I use 1680x1050...)

                    Here is my xorg.conf:
                    Code:
