Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2005-11-25 03:24:02 UTC
Unfortunately, we can't probe for monitors on x86_64 due to the generic method
(ddc vbe probing via lrmi) not working once you've switched to long mode.  There
are other card specific methods, but X doesn't support a way to get access to
those.  The longer term answer is going to involve reworking the way that X
handles configuration
