Description John Steele Scott 2008-04-26 23:08:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008041816 Fedora/3.0-0.55.beta5.fc9 Firefox/3.0b5

Description of problem:
I have installed F9 Preview on my iBook G4 (ATI Technologies Inc M9+ 5C63 [Radeon Mobility 9200 (AGP)] (rev 01)). I have a BenQ FP231-W external display, which supports many resolutions up to 1920x1200.

When I start X without the display attached, and then attach the display and run xrandr, xrandr does not show VGA-0 as supporting any video mode greater that 1024x768.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-ati-6.8.0-10.fc9.ppc

How reproducible:
Always


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into X without an external monitor attached.
2. Attach my BenQ FP231W external display to the VGA port of the iBook.
3. Run xrandr.

Actual Results:
[toojays@fuzz ~]$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 1024
LVDS connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

   800x600        60.3  
   640x480        59.9  
VGA-0 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 496mm x 310mm

This is the "expected results", which I can achieve if the external monitor is
connected to the VGA port when X starts.

[toojays@fuzz ~]$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1920 x 1200
LVDS connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1024x768       60.0 +   60.0*

   1920x1200      60.0 +   60.0  
   1920x1080      60.4     59.9  
   1600x1200      60.0     60.0

   1280x1024      75.0     75.0     72.0     60.0     60.0  
   1440x900       59.9  
   1280x960       60.0  
   1360x768       59.8     60.0  
   1152x864       75.0     75.0     75.0     70.0     60.0  
   1024x768       75.1     75.0     70.1     60.0* 
   832x624        74.6  
   800x600        72.2     75.0     60.3     56.2  
   640x480        75.0     72.8     72.8     75.0     66.7     60.0     59.9  
   720x400        70.1  
S-video disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

I can then run "xrandr --output LVDS --off --output VGA-0 --auto" to get a nice
1920x1200 output on my external monitor.

I want to be able to do this even if my monitor was not connected when I started X.

you need to set a virtual line for now, as the driver can't do dynamic memory
allocation yet.
