Description Tormod Volden 2007-09-05 15:41:19 UTC
(In the heat of debugging bug #12245) I tried to use displayconfig-gtk to enable dual-head (laptop with X700 card + external LCD) and "Test" would always fail. Restarting X with the new xorg.conf crashes the server.

xorg-server 2:
xserver-xorg-video-ati 6.7.192-1ubuntu1

Seems to be confirmed with the same backtrace on ATI Radeon 7500 QW (AGP/PCI) in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xserver-xorg-video-ati/+bug/132716/comments/31
Comment 4 Alex Deucher 2007-09-14 16:10:13 UTC
The problem is you are trying to set up zaphod mode with a driver that doesn't support it.  displayconfig-gtk is doing the wrong thing; use xrandr to configure 6.7.192.
Comment 5 Tormod Volden 2009-11-29 08:56:25 UTC
I think this bug has run out of date. I have no displayconfig-gtk any longer either.
