Bug#422777: xserver-xorg-video-ati: xcalloc patch worked

I was having similar symptoms, and Michel's patch at
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9816 fixed it.

I didn't have nearly as many warnings/errors in my xorg logs a Felix, though (I
only had the "Mode pool is empty" warning).  Could he be having kernel problems
as well?  Some of those warnings looked like there could be pci issues.

Bug#380171: xserver-xorg-video-ati: Mouse pointer messed up on second head

Actually, I need to reopen this bug.  I just replaced one of my LCD

Bug#431242: xserver-xorg-video-i810: Resizing video windows leads to blue rectangles obscuring righthand sides

Package: xserver-xorg-video-i810
Version: 2:2.0.0-1
Severity: important

When I view DVD or MPEG video in programs like Ogle and Xine, I run into trouble resizing windows, including
to full-screen and non-full-screen 
sizes.  When I put the window at the upper lefthand corner of my screen and move it to just the right size
(probably based on the video's 
resolution), everything displays fine.  When I resize the window to be just a little bigger than its
"natural" size, a blue rectangle appears, 
blocking the righthand side of the video from top to bottom.  The larger I resize the window, the more of the
video is blocked by a blue rectangle.  
Also, the position of the window matters; I can size a window larger without an obscuring rectangle when I
place the window closer to the upper 
lefthand corner of the screen.

Bug#431032: xserver-xorg-video-i810: LCD won't turn off when docked, on Dell laptop

Hi Brice,
Upgrading to xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.0.0-5 did not solve the
problem directly, but the xrandr program did!
(I didn't try xrandr before upgrading, so the upgrade may not have
actually been required).

Anyhow I'm quite happy with the result.

Two questions:-
1) How could I automate the xrandr process on boot?
2) Can I use the laptop screen + CRT as a dual display setup when the
laptop is docked? (I think I probably can't as the output is not dual
headed)

Thanks!

You can setup a small script (for instance in your .xsession if you are
using this during your login) to do the xrandr stuff. You can even
detect whether the CRT is connected by grep'ing the output of xrandr and
react accordingly. However, I am not sure it is possible to do that
something before your login.

You can create a big virtual screen where outputs will be placed. You
just need to add a line
    Virtual 2048 2048
or so in SubSection "Display" in your xorg.conf. Then it is possible to
do something like
    xrandr --output LVDS --right-of VGA
to place one output right to the other. Look at the xrandr manpage for
details and other features. However, note that lots of Intel board do
not support DRI on more than 2048x2048. It means that if you want DRI,

Which xserver-xorg-video-ati are you using? If 6.6.3, could you try
6.6.192 currently in experimental? If it still doesn't work, please send
the whole output of
    /usr/share/bug/xserver-xorg/script 3>&1

Could you try with xserver-xorg-video-intel 2:2.0.0-5 currently in
experimental? There has been lots of fixes in the intel driver since the
one you're using. The one in experimental contains a more recent git
snapshot.

If it still doesn't work, please send the whole output of
    /usr/share/bug/xserver-xorg/script 3>&1

(I forgot to fix this paragraph before sending the mail).

I don't see any bug regarding this in the upstream bugzilla
(bugzilla.freedesktop.org). We need to open one and place your
Xorg.0.log when booting with the screen closed (also adding Option
"ModeDebug" "yes" in the device section of xorg.conf might be good).
Could you either open such a bug (you'll need to open an account there)
and place this Xorg.0.log? or send me this output so that I take care of
opening the bug?

Thanks,
Brice

This just bit me, too.  It looks like we have multiple options to fix
this, has one been selected?

If you just want to fix your X server, you should change keyboard into
kbd in your xorg.conf.

For the future and backward compatibility, we will probably upload a new
package with an alias from keyboard to kbd soon, so that users don't
have to change anything.
