Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 138672
Display detection regression on Radeon Mobile
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:54 EST
Description of problem:
Xorg has a bug, 1559, which affects me with FC3. Since my laptop
switches between single and dual head every day I'd very much like to
see the resolution to this bug folded into an FC3 update when possible.
Right now I have dual head working again, using the MonitorLayout
option, but when I don't have the CRT plugged in the desktop is still
setup to span two displays. Using a window which is on a non-existant
display is quite difficult. :) This used to work properly with Xorg
6.7 in FC2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Adding URL here for clarity:
The patch referenced in the above bug report is already included
in our xorg-x11 packages, as indicated in comment #30 in the
referenced bug report:

Ok, I've got Hui's patch from comment #29 now added to our
What specific xorg-x11 rpm packages do you have installed?
Setting status to NEEDINFO.
Doh, I didn't read that comment closely enough.
I have the FC3 packages installed, so:
I guess what's going on is that comment #32 means the patch only get
me and my eMachines to the state it's at now instead of back to the
way things worked with xorg 6.7.

I can confirm the latest patch works on a RV350 (9600 Mobility) in an
amd64 laptop - the MonitorLayout option is required however.
Using xorg-x11-22.214.171.1242-1 from rawhide I still have this problem.
I've updated the freedesktop.org bug with particulars.
For now, you'll have to use Monitorlayout if that works around
the issue. We will be tracking the upstream bug report, so if
a bug fix becomes available, we will review it for consideration
in future Fedora Core updates.
Setting status to "UPSTREAM", and tracking X.Org bug:
