Mandrake 10 on Dell 600m--Fixed one display problem and started another...
 
I've been dealing with display problems on my 600m for the last few releases of Mandrake, and I finally did a clean install in the hopes of fixing it once and for all. The display looks great on my laptop's LCD screen, but I often have it docked in my port replicator, and I would like it to use the LCD when it's not plugged in the dock, and my external CRT monitor when it is docked. This feature worked fine with previous releases, although I had to use the generic vesa driver (instead of the appropriate radeon) to get it to start the graphical display at all.

I read a previous thread where someone suggested adding :

Option "MonitorLayout" "CRT, NONE"

to the device section, which I did. With that addition, the display on my external CRT is perfect, but when it is not in the dock, the display on the LCD is very very dim and almost undiscernable. At first I thought that it wasn't displaying at all, but upon close inspection, the images are there, they are just very very dark and faint. So, for the moment I guess I can leave the aforementioned line in the config when I'm using the dock and comment it out when I want to use the laptop on it's own, but I would love to have a more convenient solution.

If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
