Hi all,

I just wanted to drop my experience with the new intel driver and
xorg-server as well.

As in the other post I did not install the Boot Camp software and
just use rEFIt. But as far as I know the BIOS emulation is included
anyway and rEFIt just does initalize / use it. The Boot Camp software
just is the GUI wizard part running in OS X. So in any case when you
boot via GRUB or LILO you end up with a BIOS. The only way to avoid
the BIOS layer is to boot via elilo. Anyway, I boot via rEFIt/Grub and
this is what I get:

Aside the integrated 1280x800 LCD I have a 1280x1024 Viewsonic
TFT attached via a ordenary VGA cable to the mini-DVI connector.

When I start the latest xorg-server/i810 driver I get a virtual
screen of 1600x1200 and no signal on the mini-DVI.

xrandr -s 1280x800

Allows to switch to 1280x800 so I do not have the virtual screen
I have to pan around.

However I wonder how to get a signal to the external connector
as  that's the screen I used to work with all day.
