I’m trying to run blender (Orange CVS) on linux (Fedora 4), and I ran into a bit of a snag. It seems that when the application tries to run on both screens, (Which it does by default), the second monitor won’t show it properly, due to a lack of hardware support. After a fair bit of googling, (and some friendly hints from these forums, (https://blenderartists.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=56828&sid=ca87a335041b6174e7c8f20a16c5d1cd )
I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way to get it working properly is to use MergedFB (http://dri.freedesktop.org/wiki/MergedFB). I just can’t figure out how to make it work!
I have a radeon 9800, using custom ATI drivers. (It says that the DRI drivers don’t support ATI’s 350 chipset). Does anybody have any ideas how to install / configure MergedFB, or where I could get some information?
Sorry if this is a stupid question, as far as linux goes, I’m still very much a newbie.
