I am getting no traction on xorg mail list - perhaps I cannot ask in a
way that makes them answer but the idea is...

Fedora 11 Beta (xrandr 1.3 - yeah!)

If I manually execute the command...
xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1024x600 --panning 1280x1024

I sort of get what I want...well, the background is tiled but my tiny
1024x600 screen becomes usable with panning and I can't understand why I
can't achieve this simply with xorg.conf.

Can anyone see what changes I need to make?
<snip>

I know very little about this but I was keeping an eye on it for my eeePC 701.

The changelog for Xorg 1.5.99 says:

Matthias Hopf (5):
� � �randr: Add monitor option "Panning" for initial panning configuration

So that says to me that somewhere in your Xorg.conf Monitor section
you should have a Panning keyword - which you don't have.

Looks like you'll have to dig around in Google though as I haven't
seen any easy source of information about it,
Or you could look at the code:
http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?h=panning-for-server-1.6&id=44b89dc0a5aa23df69539754fb76c67c310530db

Looks to me like:

Section "Monitor"
<snip>
� � �Panning � � � 1280x1024
EndSection

might do it...
----
death - death I say...

Parse error on line 44 of section Monitor in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
� � � �"Panning" is not a valid keyword in this section.
Have you tried:

Option "Panning" "1280x1024"

If you download the src.rpm for Xorg in F11b, Panning is definitely in
hw/xfree86/modes/xf86Crtc.c ... so it /should/ work...

----
In 'Monitor' section...it seems to be ignored.

# grep Panning /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(**) intel(0): Option "Panning" "1280x1024"
(WW) intel(0): Option "Panning" is not used

In 'Display' subsection of 'Screen' instead, likewise

# grep Panning /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(WW) intel(0): Option "Panning" is not used

It may not be compatible with one of the modules that I asserted but
X.org.0.log doesn't suggest that to be the problem.

Oh well, at least you've got some extra info to go back to bothering
the Xorg guys with ;o)

where's ajax when he's really needed?
