Default Xorg & laptop

Hey all,

I got myself a good laptop for OBSD however I have run into a slight problem with xorg.

The laptop has both on-board and a dedicated (ATI) the bios does not report any port information.

I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction to tell xorg.conf to use the dedicated ati card on monitor 0 at 1366x768 / 60 hrz.

The xorg its self is stock, I tried setting the default res to 24 bit / 1366x768 and it boots into a black screen (guessing the refresh is buggered) ..

xrandr reports it can not open the video..

Thanks.

It is possible that /var/log/Xorg.log.0 will describe both video cards and your attached displays; from that you may be able to modify your configuration accordingly.

Hey, Thanks

I attached a copy of my dmesg and I chopped out all the unnecessary stuff from the xorg log file into a text file...

It does see the 2 cards but I don't think their supported or something's funky here..

I guessing that not everything will work on it because its brand new, (HP Pavilion G6 15.6" Laptop - Black (AMD A8-4500M Quad Core / 750GB HDD / 8GB RAM /

Graphics Chipset AMD Radeon HD 7640G + 7670M Dual Graphics
Video Memory Configuration Dedicated and Integrated
Dedicated Video Memory Size 1 GB


I understand that not everything will work with OpenBSD, but I was hoping to try and get it "hacked" into using an older dedicated driver or anything.. This systems smoaks on a real OS and IDC about gaming. But anything you can suggest would be awesome..

Thanks

Code:
vga1 at pci0 dev 1 function 0 vendor "ATI", unknown product 0x9903 rev 0x00
I don't think that xf86-video-radeon in OpenBSD 5.2 supports that recent of a card.

More info here.

This also may get sticky to hack, the gentoo forums indicate that a firmware file is needed
