X11 6.8.1


Hey folks -

I upgraded to X11 6.8.1. In hindsight, maybe I shouldn't have.

Fonts are crazy looking (poor quality) but the reason of the post is that
I've lost my dual monitors.

Apparently my old (working) xorg.conf file will not work for some reason.

To clarify - Both monitors are working, but I can not get:

Option "Xinerama" "true"

to work. So both monitors are a mirror image of eachother, instead of
a big desktop. Anyone know a solution? Or should I try to go back to
X11R6.7?

Thanks in advance - tw

EDITED:
In rereading this again, I should clarify. After I upgraded I ran xorgconfig. All went well, and
then I 'started x'. GUI came up fine. I copied and pasted some sections of my old xorg.conf for my scroll mouse (which works fine now), and the dual monitors. But like I said, the Xinerama is not working.

I copied the xorg.conf file to a anather name, and just used my old xorg.conf file which worked fine in X11R6.7. I get a whole bunch of errors in regards to my keyboard, video card module, and "screens found, but not recognized" or something like that.

PS - I used swaret to upgrade my X11.

Thanks in advance -tw



P.s - Although I tried it before, and since taken it out - I read in the Docs for X11 6.8.1 that
I need the " BusID "PCI:1:00:0" " line in the device section. I put it back in, but no
luck.
