http://crunchbanglinux.org – Hello,I've been trying to get dual monitors working on my Thinkpad T40 with an ATI Radeon Mobility 9000. I was using the default driver, and grandr had grayed out the "extend" option--I was stuck on "clone". Someone recommended trying the fglrx driver, so I installed it and rebooted. And was met with about 80% of my desktop wallpaper that had some random corruption. I tried fiddling around and eventually it changed to a super-corrupted, tiled version of the "Crunchbang Linux" splash screen. I believe this happened when I tried to switch to tty1."Well,&qu (HowTos)
