           Summary: Radeon does not allow selection of Primary monitor in
           Product: xorg
           Version: git
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: Driver/Radeon
        AssignedTo: xorg-driver-ati at lists.x.org
        ReportedBy: oyvinds at everdot.org
         QAContact: xorg-team at lists.x.org

I use the radeon driver with two monitors connected to radeon3000.

(II) RADEON(0): Port0:
  XRANDR name: HDMI-0
  Connector: HDMI-A
  DDC reg: 0x7e50
(II) RADEON(0): Port1:
  XRANDR name: VGA-0
  Connector: VGA
  DDC reg: 0x7e40

The VGA-0 on VGA is used as Primary monitor, that is where GDM and some apps
show up.

I want the HDMI-0 to be the Primary monitor.

I have tried to place Option "Primary" "1" in the Monitor section of the HDMI,
however, it is ignored:

(WW) RADEON(0): Option "PreferredMode" is not used
(WW) RADEON(0): Option "Primary" is not used

The Manual Page indicates that this should work,
