I played around with configuration on dx5150, and I have not managed to get a working setup. This is my current config. I can see the same thing on two screens. I really want two different things displayed.
Actually, I'm swamped by the feedback I got about this blog. I'll try to write up an update later based on the feedback. Not having a comments entry was a design decision on this blog, but that means I need to manually process information :)
and I have debugged a few more with more input. I think this is the problem of 'secondary monitor is detected as the primary monitor, and the primary monitor is not detected' bug; which seems to be reported in the lists without any feasible solution.
(II) RADEON(0): Primary: Monitor -- CRT Connector -- Proprietary DAC Type -- Primary TMDS Type -- NONE DDC Type -- MONID (II) RADEON(0): Secondary: Monitor -- NONE Connector -- Unsupported DAC Type -- TVDAC/ExtDAC TMDS Type -- NONE DDC Type -- NONE (II) RADEON(0): PLL parameters: rf=1432 rd=6 min=20000 max=47622597418048; xclk=25000 (WW) RADEON(0): Failed to detect secondary monitor, MergedFB/Clone mode disabled (II) RADEON(0): MergedFB mode forced on.
