Subject: Testing KMS for i915 in 2.6.29-rc8
I just updated my kernel to 2.6.29-rc8 to test the new KMS for the i915 driver, I know it's in test, since then, when I start X it creates 2 output. My laptop screen LVDS1 and DVI2 which is not connected but appears connected. Using xrandr to switch it off does not work [ xrandr --output DVI2 --off ] and it appears my screen changed to something around the 96dpi instead of maybe 120, or at least it appears to have reduced.
Is it a known issue, any workaround?
Here is what I have installed:
kernel 2.6.29-rc8 with KMS enabled for i915
I'm aware of the warnings/errors about wacom, I just updated to xorg-server 1.6.0 and didn't recompile them yet. And now I have some cleanup to do, seems some arguments in the intel section are now invalid.
Thank you for your help.
