Description of problem:
The ATI Radeon dual head card is deteced and configured correctly upon upgrading
my workstation from Red Hat 8.0 to Red Hat 9. However when I move my cursor to
the second monitor it shuts down.
According to the Shrike users list, this is caused by a typo in the
radeon_cursor.c file. I patched the file as suggested on the mailing list and
rebuilt the RPMS and now my Xinerama configuration works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat 9 on box with ATI Radeon 7000 (maybe others)
2. Configure Xinerama (or have redhat-config-xfree86 do it)
3. Move cursor onto second monitor and watch it turn off
Actual Results: Monitor turns off
Expected Results: Monitor should not turn off

Fixes ATI Radeon second monitor turning off with xinerama
I added this patch as Patch136, and added '%patch136 -p0' as well to the
XFree86.spec file and then rebuilt the RPMS.
While this is allready reported in bugzilla, and the same patch present,
thanks nonetheless for your feedback and for attaching the patch as well.
