Im trying to use the video output to use it with a projector.
I use xorg 6.9 from apt in a new iBook.
My xorg.conf now is:
Section "Device"
        Identifier      "ATI Technologies, Inc. M11 NV [FireGL Mobility T2e]"
        Driver          "ati"

        Option          "AccelMethod"           "exa"


With that i see the same in a external display and in the laptop lcd,
but i like the fbdev. Is there a way to use it with fbdev?
Could i configure the xorg to change dinamically from tft to external
and to external & tft or its imposible?

My ibook has default 1024x768 and I use a external TFT monitor
1280x1024 at work.
When the external monitor is plugged before starting X, I get
1280x1024 on the two screens. Otherwise I have the default 1024x768 on
my ibook's internal screen.

I use radeon driver and the default clone mode:

	SubSection "Display"
		Depth	24
		# 1280x1024 external monitor
		Modes	"1280x1024" "1024x768"

Best regards,
