Description ATek 2004-12-09 00:47:35 UTC
I've installed MDK10.1 with xorg server on a PC with Matrox G550 Dual Head.
I've a CRT on head 0 and LCD on head 1.
When linux start it use head 0 but when X server start head 0 and head 1 are
swapped. I've tried to swap "Screen 0" and "Screen 1" in Section "Device" for
device 1 and device 2 but no solution.

What can I do?

Comment 1 Alex Deucher 2004-12-09 06:22:43 UTC
As I recall there is an mga driver option to swap the crtc to output mapping. 
check the mga man page or the source for more info.
Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2005-12-22 03:25:10 UTC
there is, Option "SwappedHead".

the mga man page is in serious need of an update.

Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys.  Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
