mani|work: hi, here is just radeon and not radeonhd support, right?
chithead: mani|work: visit #radeonhd for radeonhd support
mani|work: chithead: did, but still get no answer sind 40minutes, yangman gave me the right wiki link before, but i think i did what there is written and only result is, that my plasma desktop crashs(trying to make a bigdesktop) :/
mani|work: -sind +since
chithead: I guess radeonhd developers are all asleep now
mani|work: oh, what is there timezone around?
mani|work: here is +1, so here is 11'o'clock am
chithead: iirc, novell hq is in est
rx__: at least the devs are
mani|work: you are right, i just will try it later again :)
kasukka: anyone got suggestions how do i set up split-screen multiple x-servers? i was wondering if i could then have multiseat-kind set up with one video card only, by first spanning then splitting
kasukka: couple of illustrations:
chithead: kasukka: it is possible with the xephyr multihead solution
kasukka: chithead: can you help with details? i've got xephyr (and i've seen xgl suggested too) at hand but kinda clueless atm how would i go about
chithead: kasukka: xgl is also possible but causes additional problems. just follow the xephyr multiseat guide
kasukka: most of the examples on the net are for multiple screens
kasukka: well, all i've found
chithead: for multiseat with one screen, you need to compile xephyr with the -geometry patch (sadly rejected by the xephyr maintainer) and define geometry according to your screen layout. there exist several guides for that
kasukka: ok i see
kasukka: chithead: for the record, what kind of problems will xgl be causing you mentioned about?
chithead: for xgl also needs patches to be able to use event input stuff, and it can be slow depending on the driver in use. also xvideo acceleration is not possible
CE: do all radeon chipsets (and the driver of course) support solid on A8 destination, as well as A8+A8 composition?
CE: sorry, connection was interrupted
FAJ: hi i am using an ati video card on a laptop; i have window reflections enabled, but it is not showing up, using open source ati/radeon drivers on ubuntu.
MostAwesomeDude: FAJ: Is this, by chance, a compiz thing?
FAJ: MostAwesomeDude: i have looked into it, but it looks like it is more of a video card issue over compiz issue, was just thinking someone might have had this issue with ati and compiz before
MostAwesomeDude: FAJ: I mean, you're talking about compiz window reflections, right?
MostAwesomeDude: Which video card?
FAJ: ati radeon mobility 7500
FAJ: i am also having issues with dual monitors on this vid card in ubuntu,,, if you have any ideas
MostAwesomeDude: Hm. Well, reflections should work fine. They don't use any strange card features, and I've got them working just fine.
MostAwesomeDude: What kind of dual-monitor issues?
FAJ: ummm my other monitor is 1440 by 900, but whatever i do, i cannot get it to get to that screen resolution
FAJ: rx__: what? confused
FAJ: i also cannot get my videocard to see any resolution over 1280x1023
FAJ: rx__: o ok,,,, confused on what to do with it?
FAJ: right now it would be cool if i could get my laptop monitor to over a 1280x1024 monitor
FAJ: corrected; 1024x768
FAJ: xrandr says that that is max
xnguard: FAJ: Are you using DVI?
FAJ: not sure
FAJ: the one in the back/
xnguard: FAJ: How many pins?
FAJ: six on the top row
FAJ: i think it's dvi
xnguard: If it's single-channel DVI, your maximum output bandwidth limits you to 1280x1024@60Hz.
FAJ: oh shoot.
chithead: single channel dvi should be good up to 1920x1200@60hz
xnguard: If it's VGA, or you have a DVI-I port and connect it to a DVI-I<->VGA adapter, you should be able to shoot a lot higher?
chithead: FAJ: make sure that you virtual is large enough
FAJ: right now i xrandr says that my max is 1024x768
xnguard: chithead: I could've sworn single channel DVI was 1280x1024.
chithead: hdmi is essentially single-channel dvi and definitely supports 1920x1080
FAJ: this is an old laptop though....
xnguard: chithead: HDMI is 2-channel DVI, unless someone's cheaping out and ignoring the specs.
FAJ: lol :) it's all good this res works.
xnguard: I've never heard of an HDMI anything that wasn't twin channel DVI. More *or* less than two channels.
xnguard: Anyway, time to leave work, finally.
chithead: according to wikipedia, hdmi type a connectors (the common ones) are single-link dvi
