Default xinerama on dual head radeon 9600

Hello,

I'm trying to set up a radeon 9600 in an Apple G5 with two monitors.
I've tried both Xinerama and MergedFB.

Server version:

X.Org X Server 1.5.3
Release Date: 5 November 2008
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0

Current Operating System: Linux perthite 2.6.30-gentoo-r5 #5 SMP Fri Dec 11 15:01:41 NST 2009 ppc64

Here is the result using xinerama:

I've also tried MergedFB. That does not crash but i just get two
identical views of my desktop.

Sorry for the long post.

I'd appreciate any help offered.

Thanks,
Roger

Hello,

the reason for segfaulting is that you try to use a zaphod style
xorg.conf with xrandr. That don't mix. I learned that the hard way.

Xinerama is deprecated and replaced by xrandr so you need to configure
that if you want use a Xinerama-like layout.

Greetings

Sebastian
