I'm running FC5 on a thinkpad (T40 ) and I'm trying to get a secondary external monitor to just show a copy of the primary (i.e the laptop LCD). I'm using the open radeon drivers that my FC5 installation defaulted to for my ATI video card (see details below). I can actually get dualhead to work fine with individual (non-spanning) desktops, but what I want is just to have both screens to simply show the same content, although with the correct individual resolutions.
Is there anyone out there with a working xorg.conf for such a set-up?!
I also tried posting this at fedoraforum.org, but without much response. Funny thing is, I thought that getting "clone" mode to work properly would be pretty easy since I've seen a lot of posts by people who are trying to get their spanning desktop dualhead stuff to work, complaining that their external monitor ends up only beeing a replica of the primary screen.. Which is exactly what i want.. Kind of ironic
Anyhow, all and any advice is much appreciated!
Video card: ATI Radeon R250 Lf [FireGL 9000]
Chipset: ATI Radeon Mobility 9000 (M9) Lf (AGP)
External monitor: HP L1925
