Description of problem:
The best XF86Config that we've come up with doesn't quite work.

It comes up dual-head, but when the mouse is moved off of the first monitor,
that monitor goes blank (sleep).  The monitor can be re-activated by (1) move
the mouse onto that monitor (it won't yet be visible), and then (2) switch
virtual consoles away from X and back again.

Although the monitor comes back, it will go away again when the mouse leaves it.

[This config is the result of many experiments.  Some other configs crashed the
X server without apparent reason.  Some gave two cloned screens (but only one
dispayed a cursor).  Some left only one monitor and that at an inappropriately
low resolution.]

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.RHL9 + Radeon 9000 pro + 2 newish monitors
2.install enclosed XF86Config

Actual Results:  see above

Expected Results:  dual head Radeon 9000 pro system runs as well as former
system (RHL7.x + Radeon VE)

Comment 3 D. Hugh Redelmeier 2003-04-30 08:00:15 UTC
Tried Radeon VE dual-head with this RHL9 installation -- same problem.
We have no problem with this Radeon VE under RHL7.3 and RHL8.
Radeon 9000 pro isn't supported until RHL9 so we cannot try it with the earlier
