Description Jim Rich 2002-12-26 20:14:00 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218

Description of problem:
Anaconda defaults dualhead display setup to unuseable configuration.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install phoebe to dualhead display, using for example Matrox G450 card.

Actual Results:  Monitor 2 displays exactly the same contents as monitor 1.

Expected Results:  Anaconda should give dualhead display users the option of
configuring either giant merged display, two independent display screens, or the
current default of two identical displays.

Additional info:

SuSE defaults to two independent display screens, which is at least useable. 
Most users would prefer a giant merged display, which is the Matrox default on
Windows or Linux, i.e., two 1600x1200 displays form a merged 3200x1200 display.

This would require support for dual head in redhat-config-xfree86.
