I'm curious to know what types of configuration developments are
happening around the MergedFB mechanism in X. Currently, I can share a
dual head configuration and a single head configuration together except
for two options:
1a. Option "MetaModes" "1024x768-1280x1024 1024x768"
b. Option "MetaModes" "1024x768"
2a. Virtual 2304 1024
b. ---not defined---
a is for my dual head setup and b is for my single head setup.
Obviously, my target of concern is a laptop with an internal panel as
one head and an external monitor as the other.
Right now, I have to change these manually. Ctrl_Alt_+ and Ctrl_Alt_-
are a *pain* to compose on my IBM T30. And, frankly, with the virtual
at 2304 1024, I'm not certain how much that'd help me anyway.
So, is there an RandR interface into MergedFB and would
system-config-display have control over it? Does system-config-display
support MergedFB setups when configuring dual head? Is this on the
(I know all cards do not support it, but it would be nice if a
capabilities mechanism were able to detect this based on the card's
vendor string, etc.)
Thanks for any links, hints, and your ideas on this...

I had just migrated over our production server running FC3 (from a machine
running FC2) last Friday evening. The machine had been running for almost a
month in parallel with the production server.
Things went *very* smoothly. On Tuesday, it was scheduled to have sendmail
upgrade from the stock 8.13.1 install to the current 8.13.4 version.
The RPM was built, rolled off of the 8.13.1 spec file with some minor
modifications to some of the patches, and installed.
Instantly, it was discovered that mail was unable to be delivered to any local
user (users are stored in LDAP) not in the /etc/passwd file.
After rolling back to the stock version, and a lengthy period of debugging
(attempts with builds made from the stock 8.13.1 SRPM among other tests, all of
which failed in the same manner), it was discovered that the BIND-LIBS
updates-released package for Fedora Core 3 contained new libraries (libbind.so,
libbind.so.3, libbind.so.3.0.8) and that these new libraries conflicted with the
Once these libs were removed from /usr/lib, sendmail on Fedora Core 3 was able
to be built and run with no problems.
I am not sure where to report this issue, but I figured I would "spread the
word" in the event that others may experience the same problem.
