my problem:
i want to mirror lcd display contents to external monitor (via VGA external port).
I want to mirror the CONSOLE/FRAMEBUFFER output, that is to say that currently i am NOT looking to mirroring the X stuff.

This means that when i don't even run the X (i.e. using linux in command line mode only) - i still want to see the mirror output in the external video out.

I am compiling kernel video drivers for radeon right into the kernel (not modules). I am failing to get any fricking results... when the thing boots - lcd displays ok, external lcd monitor is always white...

my kernel:
2.6.9-gentoo-r1

my video card:
ATI Radeon mobility (9200 M9+)

all is running on iBook G4 1.2GHz laptop

I have tried compiling the kernel with either the old Radeon support driver OR the new - mirror option does not work in either.
kernel is passed "video=radeonfb:mirror" option in yaboot.conf file (installed with ybin)

i have tried to hardcode the hack in radeon fb drivers (kernel - NOT X) - no result in setting mirror option to 1 and doing other similar hacks...

have there perhaps been updates of kernel sources that fix the aforementioned problems?

any help will be greatly appreciated...

Kind regards
Leon.
