dual monitor problem with radeon


Hi there,

Just installed FC5 and trying to configure dual monitor.

when trying to start the X server I either get both screens showing the same thing, which is not exactly what I need, or have a display only on the screen that is configured to be screen 0 in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

Also, I get a warning when trying to start X.
The whole output I get when starting X is:
Code:
[root@hades ~]# startx
xauth:  creating new authority file /root/.serverauth.18357

X Window System Version 7.0.0
Release Date: 21 December 2005
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 7.0
Build Operating System:Linux 2.6.9-22.18.bz155725.ELsmp x86_64Red Hat, Inc.
Current Operating System: Linux hades.7mbit.net 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 #1 SMP Tue Mar 14 15:48:20 EST 2006 x86_64
Build Date: 06 March 2006
        Before reporting problems, check http://wiki.x.org
        to make sure that you have the latest version.
Module Loader present
Markers: (--) probed, (**) from config file, (==) default setting,
        (++) from command line, (!!) notice, (II) informational,
        (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
(==) Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log", Time: Sun Apr  2 23:17:20 2006
(==) Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"

(WW) RADEON: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
xset:  bad font path element (#102), possible causes are:
    Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
    Directory missing fonts.dir
    Incorrect font server address or syntax
startkde: Starting up...
kbuildsycoca running...
>> running as realtime process now (priority 50)
KWrited - Listening on Device /dev/pts/2
Note the warning about no matching device. As you can see at the conf file below both devises point to PCI:1:0:0.

When DRI is enabled I get additional error messages:
Code:
(EE) RADEON(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed.  Disabling DRI.
(EE) RADEON(1): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed.  Disabling DRI.
My /etc/X11/xorg.conf is as below.
