Extra VGA output on a Dell Latitude D400
- I use a distribution Ubuntu Edgy-Eft (6.10). The graphical chipset is
an 855GM Intel and the installed driver is the i810. I have a curious
behaviour wrt the extra VGA output.
- The builtin LCD displays a very good screen.
- With Fn+F8 the display is switched to the extra VGA output and gives
a very good screen on a CRT or a Videoprojector.
-With Fn+F8, another time, the screen is displayed simultaneously on
the builtin LCD (very good screen) and the external CRT giving a
vibrating image which looks like a frequency problem.
Someone having an idea ?
It is very difficult to do a presentation with a videoprojector but
without a visual feedback on the builtin LCD.
PS: I have tried to configure xorg.conf as it has to manage a dualhead
card. No change. Setting-up a clone display freezes the Xorg server.

Xserver patches) to get dual-head working but it's happy now.
