The BIOSHotkeys and MergedNonRectangular options are unknown on my Fedora Core 4 with xorg-x11-6.8.2-37.FC4.49.2. Asgeirn 09:39, 28 Sep 2005 (CEST)

MergedFB messes up LCD screen

When I try to used any MergedFB configuration, my laptop screen goes crazy. I can see from the screen and the Xorg logs that the second monitor is setup and the mergedfb is active, but the laptop screen is completely unreadable, even when I switch back to the VTs in text mode. The screen is just a blur of colors. This happens no matter what the mergedfb size is. My system is a T41 (2373-7FU) with Radeon 7500 M7 LW.

Xinerama works just fine, but of course there is no direct rendering.


Sounds like a refresh rate issue. Try the xorg.onf snippet in ATI Mobility Radeon X300.

real dual-head with 6.9.0?

Anyone having a working configuration providing real dual-head setup (two independent screens, no moving of windows between them) with the radeon driver?

Turning HyperZ on really increases my OpenGL speed (we're talking, some 1200 FPS in gears to 1600 FPS on an A31p/FireGL 7800). Since it's in /etc/drirc and not in the xorg.conf, this probably isn't the place to put that. Start a new entry for DRI options or something?

External Docking Stations

I have no problem with my docking station. Is this generally a wide-spread problem?
