[ltp] LCD plus DVI on T30 under Ubuntu feisty
Tue, 29 May 2007 16:29:20 +0200
In October it was explained how to modify the radeon driver so one can use
the DVI port on a T30 docking station in conjunction with the built-in panel.
I quote the instructions below.
I just upgraded my Ubuntu OS from edgy to feisty and of course the driver
was updated in the process. What do I _now_ need to do in order to use
the DVI port on the docking station in conjunction with the built-in panel?
