The State of X.Org

Dicky Seems fine to me (618 comments)

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a new motherboard, an Asus P5E-VM HDMI, one of the very very few boards on the market with dual-head on-board Intel graphics. I wanted Intel because I've had good experiences with their drivers recently, because I like keithp, and because I'm not a gamer - and I wanted dual-head because I've got two monitors which I used to use with a Radeon.

I had done my research, and I knew there was a problem with the HDMI/DVI port on the board with the latest Intel driver - it's effectively an on-board third-party SVDO chip, rather than an integrated second head. I got the board, I plugged it in, hey presto the second (digital) head didn't work. Except that - oh, what's this? - a patch was committed last week which fixes the problem. I grabbed the driver from git last night and built it, and I'm now happily working with a stable digital image.

Seems like it's working okay to me.
