But that also points out a deficiency in xorg, IHMO. Why can't we have
_both_ screens showing the same things at their native resolutions?
That's what the kernel seems to do while booting.

You could do this by enable scaling on the smaller screen (xrandr --scale
option),
but this looks rather awful.

But then it's different. It's never awful to use a monitor/flat panel
at their _native_ resolution.

I would like to see things with 1280x800 on the laptop and 1920x1200 on the
monitor.

But from my user standpoint the kernel does a much better job than xorg
now. During boot I get both screens working nicely together, each one
at their native resolution.

It shows nothing more than a static splashscreen.

No, I removed the splashscreen to see the boot messages both from the
kernel and from the init scripts.

After seeing that it's possible to do this (native res. for both screens
at the same time), no other solution seems as good for me. After KMS my
expectations are quite high on this front :-)

I don't know how to code xorg to do what the kernel does, but from what
I see everyday in the morning from the kernel side when I boot, it should
be possible.

Or perhaps I am completely wrong, I don't want to complain to people who
actually code things up.
