I've installed the radeonhd driver with Yast from the repository
above.
A
first attempt to configure my dual head with sax2 brought the same
bad
results as before. So: what must I do for configuring it right? The
wiki
doesn't say anaythingt to the configuration, or at least I don't
understand it at all. Must I remove the ATI driver if I've installed
the
radeonhd? If yes, what can I use instead of aticonfig? I Like to use
aticonfig, because this brought better results then Sax2. Sax2 gives
me
my
second monitor only in a resolution of 1024x786, aticonfig does
1280x1024.
However, using aticonfig the display doesn't fit onto my monitor
display... The best for me would be some suggestions what I should
change
in the xorg.conf listed below,in order to get in correct:

First Monitor IBM LCD 1680x1050, 15 Inches
Second Monitor: DELL 1907 FPT 1280x1024, 19 Inches

Hoping for a lot of helpful answers :-)

Please uninstall the fgrlx driver including the aticonfig tool. If you
use the RPMs from the openSUSE buildservice you can just run 'sax2
-r'. This will generate a single head configuration. To this single
configuration (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) add

Virtual 2960 1050

to the appropriate 'SubSection "Display"' in 'Section "Screen"',
probably the one with colordepth 24. Then you can use xrandr later for
dynamically configure your desktop.

xrandr --output <output1> --left-of <output2>

Check the output names by running xrandr without any options first.
This
is also described in '9.5. How do I set up multiple monitors?' on

http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonhd


There seems pt be a misunderstanding. I don't want to have to different
destops. Waht I like to have is Dual head mode, but the second monitor
should be a clone of the first one, with a resolution lesser then teh
laptops TFT. Such a configuration is also very important (and common) if
you like to access a beamer.

Then it's even easier. You don't need the Virtual keyword for
xorg.conf and can just call 'xrandr --auto'.



I fear I am a real dummy in using xrandr :-(

Running xrandr --auto even in verbose mode doesn't do anything.

After invoking sax my laptops TFT display is perfect, on my DELL, however
my dektop doesn't fit on the Display, and (even worse) I cant move around
:-(

Cheers

Alexander

P.S. Her my xorg.conf. What do I need to add where???
