Dual Head/Monitor Setup on Dell C610


Hello,

I am trying to setup dual head on my Dell with an External Flat Panel LCD. I seem to be having some success but all I can get is clone of my normal monitor veiw on the external monitor i.e I can't seem to get xinerama to work.

According to this guy it is possible, under "How to get Dual Head working on Dell's Latitude c610"

http://www.aquarionics.com/category/linux

I have not followed hos config to the letter but I think I have the important parts

I do seem to be getting one warning:

(WW) RADEON: More than one matching Device section found: device1

and this is my xorg.conf
Code:
