Fedora Core 6 + Dual Head on Dell Latitude D620

I’m very happy with my new D620, but of course I couldn’t use FC6 out of the box (the iso in fact). I had some troubles with the Xorg resolution but google is my friend and I was able to have 1440×900 using the 915resolution program.

The laptop is able to run Compiz, so everything is nice in the best world… but (there is always a but) using a dual head configuration crashes always my X 🙁

I found that it’s due to Compiz (or beryl) so I guess it’s something to do with AIXGL… if somebody as a solution…

  1. I had the same X problems (using the 945GM Intel Graphics card). Using FC 5, this xorg.conf file works for me (you will have to select which layout to use when you start X):
