I have had a ticket open since last February where the driver ignores
a monitor because it doesn't do EDID and ends up not sending any signal to
the DVI port (I suspect it is getting sent to the VGA port). I have to
patch xorg-x11-drv-ati everytime a new version becomes available. This
actually works pretty well, but is still annoying.
