Some days ago I installed Ubuntu Dapper Drake with Xorg 7.0 here. But then I
use multihead with my radeons the way I can in Xorg 6.8.2. I tried to find
the reason
and I saw some users with similar problems in a Debian mailing list, some of
had to go back to Xorg 6.8.2 because of the problems that they were having
in the
latest versions of Xorg. I then reinstalled a distro which is based on
Ubuntu Breezy
which has Xorg 6.8.2 and I will only try Xorg 7 with multihead again in 6
months or
more, because I'll wait till they fix the problems. On the other hand, if
you can get it
to work for you, then good for you. :-)
