Re: radeon driver updates for mac laptops



Hi Alex,

I did confuse the config files in my last test. So, forget everything I
said.

No. I must add the MacModell ibook option. Otherwise the external
connector didn't work.

No. To illustrate what I mean with “becomes destroyed” I made some
images. http://www.minet.uni-jena.de/~joergs/ibook/

The “damage” happens also when starting and stopping the X server while
the external monitor is plugged in. If it's unplugged, the screen stays
black until the window manager comes up.

I've put also my xorg.conf and Xorg.log there.

Bye, Jörg.
