Until now I've been running on a Mac Mini with only an external monitor,
so there has been no issue.
I'm now trying it out on a 915GM based Fujitsu laptop, running the 7.2
server on OpenSuse 10.2.
I specified CRT in MonitorLayout, but
(II) intel(0): RandR 1.2 enabled, ignore the following RandR disabled
(WW) intel(0): Option "MonitorLayout" is not used
(II) intel(0): Output configuration:
(II) intel(0): Pipe A is on
(II) intel(0): Display plane A is now enabled and connected to pipe A.
(II) intel(0): Pipe B is on
(II) intel(0): Display plane B is now enabled and connected to pipe B.
(II) intel(0): Output VGA is connected to pipe none
(II) intel(0): Output LVDS is connected to pipe B
(II) intel(0): Output TMDS-1 is connected to pipe none
(II) intel(0): Output TV is connected to pipe A
I do have Option "monitor-VGA" "MyVgaMonitorSection" in the config
file, which I thought would select VGA on one of the pipes, but does not.
Can I force the VGA output from xorg.conf?
Is there a client that can run against the 7.2 server and use its
standard RANDR extension to do the selection?
