           Summary: xrandr 1.2 and initial Virtual size
           Product: xorg
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
        OS/Version: Linux (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: low
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: kapetr at mizera.cz
         QAContact: xorg-team at lists.x.org

Hello and sorry please my English.

I'm running X.Org 1.4.2 server ...
((BTW: How to find out the version? (7.4, ...)  X -showconfig gives also just
:"1.4.2" ))

on "radeon" driver on my Radeon 7000 AGP 32MB card with 2 VGA outputs.

The problem is, that if no "Virtual" line in Screen in xorg.conf is set, then
the maximum of screen size is set to 1600x1200.

This is too little for my card - She supports (accel.) up to 2048x1200 [or
2048x1200 - I'm not sure].

This is also reported in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:

"(II) RADEON(0): Max desktop size set to 2048x1200"

But after start of X xrandr reports:

"Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1600 x 600, maximum 1600 x 1200"

?? Why is the maximum down from 2048x1200 to 1600x1200 ??

This let me use my DUALHEAD just by 2x 800x600 :-(

The problem is, that by use of LiveCD Linuxes the xorg.conf is setup-ed
automatically and I can not change the Virtual size.

xrandr --fb XxY don't work.

Also: could You please do, that X.Org will respect the Virtual size reported by
driver ?  

Or at least: make it possible to let xrandr change maximal Virtual size ?

Thank You

Karel Petranek
