Re: VIDEO OUT



Similar hardware (ibook G4 1Ghz Radeon Mobility 9200) and similar problem: 
external VGA monitor is not working. I tried with "clone" attributes in 
XF86config (attached), with poor results :-(

The attached XF86config works OK with just the LCD. By uncommenting lines in 
section ServerLayout you obtain the best result I have... which is useless.

Any idea welcome
