Description Adam Jackson 2009-10-08 12:17:17 UTC
Relevant intel-gfx thread:


In short, at least with 2.6.31 kernels, one can not listen for hotplug interrupts usefully in the X server without also turning them off for TV outputs (for machines with an actual TV connector).  Otherwise the X server gets stuck in a loop constantly reprobing the outputs.
