Description Mike A. Harris 2003-05-23 23:51:40 UTC
The current Radeon manpage included with rawhide XFree86 is out of date with
the current driver in rawhide, as I've updated the driver to include various
new code contributed by ATI which changes the way the driver works compared
to the stock XFree86 4.3.0 release.

Some users have confusion as to how to configure the driver now, and report
various clone mode problems.  These new options should permit people to
configure properly:

       Option "MonitorLayout" "string"
              This option is used to overwrite  the  detected  monitor  types.
              This  is only required when driver makes a false detection.  The
              possible monitor types are:
              NONE   -- Not connected
              CRT    -- Analog CRT monitor
              TMDS   -- Desktop flat panel
              LVDS   -- Lapto flat panel
              This option can be used in following format:
              Option "MonitorLayout" "[type on primary], [type on secondary]"
              For example, Option "MonitorLayout" "CRT, TMDS"

              Primary/Secondary head for dual-head cards:
              (when only one port is used, it will be treated as  the  primary
              Primary head:
              DVI port on DVI+VGA cards
              LCD output on laptops
              Internal TMDS prot on DVI+DVI cards
              Secondary head:
              VGA port on DVI+VGA cards
              VGA port on laptops
              External TMDS port on DVI+DVI cards

              The default value is undefined.
