my desktop was completely broken this morning because my startup
rely on xrandr utility. An older update from this summer which I applied
recently changed it's output so device ids now contain dash characters
(e.g. instead VGA0 I see VGA-1).
Using what gfxchip? VGA0 I don't remember ever seeing. Most I remember seeing:
VGA # Intel analog (old)
VGA1 # Intel analog
HDMI1 # Intel HDMI aka DVI
DP1 # Intel DisplayPort
VGA-1 # Nouveau analog
DVI0 # Nouveau & NV DVI
DVI-I-1 # Nouveau DVII multihead
DVI-I-2 # Nouveau DVII multihead
VGA-0 # Radeon analog
DVI-0 # Radeon DVI
I just wonder why this landed into stable repository. The package
changelog really shows it's a rolling release kinda thing.
I understand some packages has exceptions, like kernel, firmware and
such things. But xorg tools? Thanks for explanation.
