Here is a problem which there *must* be a solution to :
Laptop with display capable of 800*600 and card capable of more than
that. When the card is connected to an external monitor and a higher
resolution than 800*600 is selected the driver (SVGA) complains that it
is bigger than the "LCD panel" and won't work. Somehow it seems to know
that there is an onboard LCD display. This happens even if we enter a
manual monitor definition in XF86Config.
We know the card (NeoMagic NM2000 with 2m ram, Gateway Solo 3100) can
produce the output since it works (with a bit of tweaking) in NT. We
tried using a display resolution of 800*600 and a virtual desktop of
1024*768 - this somehow fooled NT into producing the correct sized
desktop, but XFree only does the floating desktop thing.
Any ideas ?
