Hi Marty,

You can keep this bug report and Bug 100679 separate.
In some ways, the root cause is ultimately the same (i.e., OpenChrome DDX is
not properly mode setting the FP for your particular FP hardware
configuration), but if you have to upload data, you can upload it for Bug
    If I were to give one advise, you can also attach a separate monitor if you
wanted to run the via_regs_dump utility after the FP gets messed up.
I did fix many dual monitor issues during the past two releases (Version 0.5
and 0.6), so you should be able to use it without issues.
Installing ARandR from Synaptic can be very helpful during this debug process.
ARandR allows you to move the view port of the screen to certain coordinates.
For example, you can assign FP as your top screen and VGA as your bottom
If you use 32-bit color mode (default), you are limited to 2044 dots for the X
total resolution.
The only way to overcome this is to use 16-bit color mode, and this will allow
you to have two monitors side by side (X total resolution goes up to around
4088 dots if I remember it correctly.).

You are receiving this mail because:
You are on the CC list for the bug.
