I'm havind trouble with Xinerama, after a brand new XF86Config i get the error of no screens found.... but i don't know what the problem is.... because when i delete 1 screen and 1 output on my graphic card, everything works except the dual headed display off course.......
I really don't know anymore what to do :S i tried editing XF86Config using some howto, didn't work, using fglrxconfig, no effect......
Does anybody know the solution to my problem?? (or some good howto for a ATI 9000)
Some information about my system
Graphics: ATI 9000 pro
Box: testing Debian (Sarge)
well think that that's the all you should know...
I've struggled with dual-head for a very long time. The best way I can suggest is to first use the command 'X -configure', which will create the file XF86Config.new in your home directory based upon the settings that XFree86 detects. Edit this file to fine tune it, setting the default color depths and resolutions that you want, and also look up the refresh rates for your monitors and enter those in as well. There are a TON of threads in these forums dealing with dual-head, I started a bunch myself. Heres my config file for some reference:
Erik Plaggenmar, you reallyu should take care where you are posting your threads. This is the WQnS forum, which after 25 posts on the site you should have realized is for questions related to this website and not to linux.
Your thread has been reported and will soon be moved to an appropriate forum to get you the best answer, so no need to recreate the same thread in some other forum.
Please take care as to where you post your threads next time.
Yeah, my excuse!!! I also couldn't find it anywhere :S
Really stupid of me.... usually I always post in software, but i guess i was just browsing the forums, en then I started this thread... in the wrong forum :S
