Hello,

I am currently using a Compaq NX7000 laptop and x.org 6.8.1. This laptop uses the radeon 9000 series mobile chipset. When i do the xorg configuration it detects the card as an ati driver.

If i do a lspci I get the following :

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R250 Lf [Radeon Mobility 9000 M9] (rev 01)

I am trying to get internal screen and the external screen to work at the same time. However it does not appear to work. Here is my xorg.conf

Unfortunatly I cant get the laptop screen and the larger screen to work at the same time. Can anyone shed some light on this or have a laptop that this works on. I would like to stear clear of the ATI drivers as my system is a linux from scratch built box with all sorts of custom stuff that makes it annoying to use anything other than source etc..

I have also tried to use the radeon driver with little luck.
