Description Clyde E. Kunkel 2006-08-19 19:39:34 UTC
Description of problem:
In setting up dual head with two radeon cards--radeon 9200 AGP and radeon 9200SE
PCI--s-c-d assigns screen 1 vice screen 0 to second card.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time s-c-d used to configure dual head

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Completely up-to-date rawhide system
2. as root, system-config-display
3. select dual head tab
4. check dual head
5. configure monitor
6. close s-c-d
7. logoff
8. c-a-bs to restart x

Actual results:

No dual head

Expected results:

Identify the display attached to second radeon card as screen 0, vice screen 1. 

Additional info:

Original device section for the radeon 9200SE PCI has screen identified as 1 and
in the server layout the same.  Changed to screen 0 and then both displays came
up.  HOWEVER, could not mouse over to right hand screen.  So, in server layout,
changed clone option to off and, deleted all freestanding 0's, and set screen1
Rightof screen0 and then mouse would move to second screen.

Original server layout:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Multihead layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" LeftOf "Screen1"
	Screen      1  "Screen1" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
	Option	    "Xinerama" "off"
	Option	    "Clone" "on"

Revised server layout:
Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Multihead layout"
	Screen         "Screen0" 
	Screen         "Screen1" RightOf "Screen0"
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
	Option	    "Xinerama" "off"
	Option	    "Clone" "off"

With fresh install of FC6T3, problem still exists.  Manual workaround still works.
