Hello All,

I'm trying to make external VGA to work on my Apple Powerbook Titanium 400 MHz.

Tried with xinerama (fluxbox emerged with xinerama USE flag also) and MergeFB, but it won't work, starting X throwing errors "no screen..." "fatal err" etc...

Below is xorg.conf generated by Xorgautoconfig is working fine on the LCD.

xorg.conf:
Code:

      1 # This file was generated by Xorgautoconfig v0.2.2.
      2 Section "ServerLayout"
      3         Identifier      "X.Org Configured"

      7 EndSection

      9 Section "Files"
     10 # RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the
     11 # file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
     12 # no need to change the default.

     22 # as well as specifying multiple comma-separated entries in one FontPath
     23 # command (or a combination of both methods)
