Hallo Stefan,

Use radeonrandr12 driver. Just run "sax2 -r -m 0=radeonrandr12" for
configuration.

Thanks for the hint, I wouldn't have found this out by myself. :-)

In any case, it works better now, but not perfect yet.

The external monitor is now in 1680x1050 just like I want it. But the
LVDS display is now in 1024x768 instead of its native resolution
1400x1050. The GNOME top panel takes on the 1024 pixel width, leaving a
lot of empty space on the external monitor. Worse, when I close the
laptop lid, the external monitor is turned off as well.

Any advice?
