Description Yichao Zhou 2012-08-14 16:22:21 UTC
I'm using AMD/INTEL card with xf86-video-intel/amd with newest archlinux.(kde 4.9)

This is my laptop. And I use one additional screen.

I don't know how to choose the Product and Component.

If I open system setting->Display and monitor, I can see two screen: LVDS1 and HDMI1.

The standard resolution of LVDS1 is 1366x768, but now it is 1024*768.
The standard resolution of HDMI is 1920x1080, but now it is also 1024*768.

I want to close LVDS1 and set the resolution of HDMI correctly.  So I disable the size of LVDS1 and set the HDMI.  After  I apply my setting, my HDMI output will become black.

I don't know the main point of this problem.  Maybe someone could tell me how to test it further?  Thanks.

Reproducible: Always

By the way,  command
  xrandr --output HDMI1 --auto --output LVDS1 --off
works well for me.  So I believe this is a bug.

I think that's fixed.
