------- Comment #3 from reitenbach@xxxxxxxxxxx 2007-02-12 06:29 MST -------
I installed the MesaGLw-6.5.2-13, Mesa-devel-6.5.2-17, Mesa-6.5.2-17,
libdrm-2.3.0-7 from
because of the newer versions there available. SaX2, xorg-11 were the same as
the installed ones I have on SuSE 10.2.

Now the resolution of the external VGA outlet is still set to 1024x1024, but at
least the missing five centimeters are displayed on the wall. (when I use 3c as
the mode in /etc/sysconfig/videobios, when I use e.g. 30 as the mode in
/etc/sysconfig/videobios, then three centimeters of the screen are missing at
the left side) It doesn't make a difference, whether I configure 1024x768 or
1200x1024 for the external port. Always 1024x1024 is used on the external vga

I also tried to use the system without the videobis hack. X11 starts up, with
the wrong resolution on the Display, seems to be a 1280x1024, but not the
1680x1050. Therefore, I did an init 3, and started SaX2. It suggested the wrong
resolution. Therefore changing the configuration, activating dual head mode,
and 3D, I saw the correct resolution on the LCD, but on the external VGA
output, still 1024x1024 (without the missing five centimeters on the left).
with this configuration, after a reboot, the wrong (too low) resolution is used
on the LCD screen.
I cannot init 5 after using SaX, the X11 ends up with the error No screens
found, I have to reboot, to be able to start X11 again.
