OK. If the Windows setup stuff is any indication, it treats both the
Dock's DVI port and the laptop screen as one display. Also, this implies
that I could have a monitor connected to the VGA port at the same time
(although i could not physically fit because the Dock is in the way).
Thus, I would guess that it's using the internal TMDS transmitter to
drive the external DVI port. The VGA port is still there, and listed by
the BIOS in radeon_bios.c.
I will try the latest CVS, and then work on getting the internal TMDS to
drive the external DVI.
For this would I start looking at radeon_driver.c? (Pointers are welcome).
