I always have/want/need XEN activated and working. For daily use, I have
SurroundView off.

Last month, I used to have things working whith vga=791, and FB working in
wonsole, and x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.12.6 .

After update to x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati-6.13.0 , I had to disable FB at boot
prompt (regression bug ? no time to chat about minor problems that can be fixed
by disabling FB when 99% things I attemped ended up in freese or KP).

The only thing that works ATM, is when I use only two monitors on the same
card; ideally the MB integrated, or first slot PCI; getting both monitors on
second PCI card (and ONLY this second card) is way harder.

Only Windows and Debian Stable could use monitors from two different cards.
And, I can not get it in Debian anymore since I activated  hypervision (maybe a
coincidence; I have 8 different Linux in the box, and forgot the detail of what
I did).

Side note: it's easier to get logs when mouting the / in sync mode.

X -configure usually end up in segfault or freese.
