feisty updates (TV-OUT intel915)

Ok, ever since i have made the update to feisty, i haven`t a chance to test vga and tv out.
This weekend (i was boring) i can do it.
In my frist try ubuntu startup correctly and tv-out work in console mode (1024x768 i think..), but when X started.. everything what i saw was a gdm crash. The simple way (just MonitorLayout option in xorg) don`t work anymore.

I tried the same whit vga-out and everything works well , i did not have to change resolution ( 1280x800 to 1027x768) or anything... Now the Fn+F7 switch (CRT, LCD, LCD+CRT) works fine. (the mouse pointer is not lost after switch and y can alternate outputs whit no crash desktop).

Finally, i let the tv-out working whit a new xorg.conf, and now when X starts the screen is cloned and i can switch between TV+LCD, TV only and LCD only.

X --config /etc/X11/xorg.conf.sclone

the config is something like this:


Section "Device"
Identifier "SVIDEO"
Driver "i810"
Option "MonitorLayout" "TV,LFP"
Option "FlipPrimary" "True"
Option "TVStandard" "PAL-N"
