Unhappy Radeon 9200 Dual Screen on Slackware 12


Hello,

I am trying to configure dual screen with Radeon 9200 on Slackware 12.

The diaplay is working fine but I cannot configure my xorg.conf (X server) for dual screen-ed display.

I have tried to configure but it does not give me dual screens. I keep on getting the same display on both of the screens. There is no other problem otherwise.

I have also pasted relevant sections from my xorg.conf file.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

Abid Ghufran.
