Dual-monitor setup broken since commit cfce4b3e: Drop bo/width/height members from struct drmmode_scanout
Drop bo/width/height members from struct drmmode_scanout The pixmap is all we really need.
dual-monitor setup is broken for some configurations. I've an laptop with 1920x1080 native resolution connected via eDP. When adding a second monitor, the screen gets garbled there. The Monitor has a native resolution of 1680x1050 and is connected via HDMI-DVI (monitor is only DVI, laptop has only HDMI). Going back to
Fix return value check of drmIoctl() When the drmModeSetCursor2() call was replaced with bare drmIoctl() call in b344e155, a bug was introduced. With the use of drmModeSetCursor2(), the return value from drmIoctl() (which calls ioctl()) were mangled, if they were negative, they were replaced by -errno by a wrapper function in xf86drMode.c in libdrm. After replacing drmModeSetCursor2() with the call to drmIoctl(), this mangling no longer happens, and we need to explicitly check if the call to drmIoctl() fails, which is indicated by returning -1, and then why it failed, by checking errno. If the error indicated by errno is EINVAL, then we can't use the DRM_IOCTL_MODE_CURSOR2 ioctl(), and need to fall back to the DRM_IOCTL_MODE_CURSOR ioctl(). This bug can manifest itself by an invisible hw cursor on systems where the DRM_IOCTL_MODE_CURSOR2 is not implemented by the graphics driver. Signed-off-by: Niclas Zeising <email@example.com>
solved this. Attaching a photo from the corrupted screen.
