Let me rephrase this a bit ;)
When I boot without the second screen attached then attach it and
start X, I get the following errors:
(EE) SIS(0): CRT1 not detected or forced off. Dual Head mode can't
(EE) SIS(1): First head encountered fatal error, can't continue
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
Reboot with the screen attached, then start X... no problem.
So I figured it's probably some detection by the bios orso... on the
other hand when I attach the screen after booting, the screen worx in
console mode... and then switches of when I start X.....
Suggestions ? :)
BTW, the question still stands... haven't made any progress :(
