Description Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-06 06:40:18 UTC
Both in 8.0 and in Phoebe, the LCD screen keeps working even when the lid is closed and the laptop is docked, driving an external display. I am aware of the "PanelOff" option, but it would not help if I want it to work correctly without having to restart X every time I dock/undock.

Probably best to report this upstream to email@example.com and/or the dri-devel mailing lists. This is more of a feature enhancement request than a bug IMHO. The "PanelOff" option exists more or less because the feature you're requesting doesn't (to my knowledge anyway). Such feature would have to be implemented by someone on the XFree86 team with a similar laptop. I'll track this here nonetheless, so we're kept in the know of what types of features are lacking. It might be beneficial to attach your X server config file and log for future reference.

Just filled the xfree bug report form on this issue.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-24 06:50:25 UTC
Closing as duplicate of 81128. No sense tracking the same issue in two or more separate bug reports. Just update the other report as necessary to reflect the current state of testing. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 81128 ***
Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-24 09:38:27 UTC
I think you misunderstoon something - these are two completely different issues found in a single setup. This one is about a deficiency in the driver, but bug 81128 is about driver behaving in a semi-reasonable way, but configuration tool not supporting it. This one is about the internal LCD display, but bug 81128 is about the external CRT display. This bug also existed in Red Hat 8.0 (XFree86 4.2), the bug 81128 is specific to the new radeon driver (that default to utilizing the "dual-head" features of the card, while the 4.2 one was only capable of showing the same image (in the same resolution) on both LCD and CRT.
Comment 6 Aleksey Nogin 2003-02-04 07:13:29 UTC
I have to do some more testing (it is hard to see what's going on on LCD when machine is docked and the lid is closed), but I suspect this might be fixed.
Comment 7 Aleksey Nogin 2003-05-19 23:07:55 UTC
This is likely to be related to http://bugs.xfree86.org/cgi-bin/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=26
Comment 8 Mike A. Harris 2004-09-24 19:16:39 UTC
We believe this issue to be resolved in Fedora Core 2. Please upgrade to Fedora Core 2 or later, and if this issue turns out to still be reproduceable, please file a bug report in the X.Org bugzilla located at http://bugs.freedesktop.org in the "xorg" component. Once you've filed your bug report to X.Org, if you paste the new bug URL here, Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized X.Org bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
