This system has been a dual-monitor since before the change-over from
XFree86 to xorg. The change-over resulted in losing dual-monitor
capability, but I've recently taken another shot at it. I knew I'd need
to be patient during the change-over.
Both monitors are presenting the same desktop, not spread across them,
just duplicated, which isn't useful. 8o)
The system is running 7.1p4, and latest ports, kde3.5.10_1. xrandr
reports only one screen, Screen0.
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 1024, maximum 1280 x 1024
default connected 1280x1024+0+0 0mm x 0mm

I've tried running X without xorg.conf, with only ServerFlags Option
AllowEmptyInput, and I even tried to use a Monitor section to force VGA2
on. I don't know if the numbering starts at 0 or 1, but I've tried VGA1
and VGA2, with Option Enable true. I have a Matrox G550 with a standard
VGA connector and a DVI connector with the VGA adapter on it.
How do I get xrandr to recognize my second port. Should I be waiting
for a few more changes to MGA driver?
I'm not currently using mga_hal. I tried hal just now and it doesn't
help. Also, I noticed that when I use root to autoconfig X, it sets the
driver to vesa, not mga, although there are MGA lines in xorg.conf.
Please don't tell me to get different video cards. 8o)
