Dear Peter,

Thanks for your reply.

Does hot plugging means that X Server will know the Monitor type
(CRT/LCD, Highest Resolution Possible, Automatic Display on the
Connected Monitor) ?

What exactly the hot plugging means in terms of monitor ?

Best Regards

Deepak Bhatia

IIRC RandR 1.2 with monitor hotplug support was added in server 1.3.
