Dual head functioning in 9.1,9.2,9.3 as follows:
ati 9200 with dvi and vga outputs.
19" samsung syncmaster 910t digital lcd
22" viewsonic p225f pro crt
I've had a dual head configuration working since 9.1. I've upgraded
thsi same box through 9.2 and 9.3. Each time I had to use the old
config file from 9.1 to get my dual head configuration working again.
I just upgraded this same box to 10 and I can not get my dual head
configuration working now.
Worse, it appears that sax2 has removed much of the functionality of the
previous versions. In previous versions, I could add/delete a
particular video card. With 10, I have no such option. It identifies
the proper card, ati 9200, but does not see the second output. The
only way I can get sax2 to 'see' two video is to manually edit the
xorg.conf file. I'm up to it, but can't get it to work.
After fighting with it for a while, it suddenly properly identifies my
samsung monitor and I have finally got it to properly recognize the
viewsonic, yet when X starts, the secondary monitor (viewsonic) does not
get a signal.
The only warnings I receive in the log file are:
(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)
(WW) RADEON(0): Failed to detect secondary monitor, MergedFB/Clone mode
I assume the last one might have something to do with it, although when
the box starts up, the console is displayed on the secondary (viewsonic)
monitor. When X runs, it's on the primary (samsung).
Any suggestions would be wonderful.
Until later, Geoffrey
