Dell D600 and External Monitor?
- I sent this in once before, no answer, maybe I'll be lucky second time
I have a brand new Dell Latitude D600 (company standard), not a bad
machine but not very Linux friendly (as opposed to my old Dell). I'm
running Mandrake 10 Official, but this problem existed with other
distro's as well.
It has an ATI Radeon 9000 video card. When I try to use my external
monitor in an X session it doesn't work. Text mode is fine, but the
moment X kicks off it dies.
I have made the XF86Config-4 edit that was needed by my old Dell, it
made no difference.
As well, the FN + F8 combo used to switch between external CRT and LCD
works up until X kicks off, then there is no response. Once X is stopped
you can use the keys again. however the CRT display is garbled.
