|I want to dynamically use the external CRT without restarting Xorg (not mirroring but spanning desktop). So MergedFB would be the solution (with the Metamodes option), but then there is the problem that the TFT screen is flickering, CRT screen is ok.
I googled and found a bug report for this: https://bugzilla.ubuntulinux.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6223
Apparently this issue is fixed in Ubuntu. I would like to know, if this patch will be included in Gentoo? Or actually I don't know wich patch resolves this issue or is this only a configuration thing?
Btw. I compiled xorg-x11-126.96.36.199-r3 today, maybe MergedFB would be working, but xorg is not starting.
