Do those applications switch to a different video mode? If so, can you
exit from them blindly (in ppracer, just hit the Escape key repeatedly)
and return to the desktop?
DC++ does not switch the video mode; it is a 'normal' windowed Windows program
just using the standard windows controls.
I solved my problem by just running fglrxconfig. After several trial and error
attempts it finally created a XF86config that is finally as I want it:
Wine is now running (even with Option "UseFastTLS" "0"). I don't have a clue
why. fglrxconfig said something about problems with winex and "UseFastTLS"
"0" or "1". It seems to me that the normal Wine is running OK with
Tvout IS WORKING. I made a dualhead setup with PAL-B and it is working; in
colour! I get a videooverlay (i.e. Kaffeine finally shows a picture) and
Sound is working.
Before I tried:
Single Head: no tvout
Clone Mode: No overlay
Laptop Mode: no Tvout at all
Big Screen: Since KDE doesn't know about it (as in Xinerama) it is really just
one big screen starting on my monitor and continuing on the tv. Not
Dualhead: My first try with dual head didn't work; the tvout was there but
just in black/white. I don't remember what I did different at the second
Drawback of dualhead: about 20 MB higher ram usage compared to the Xfree
radeon driver (compared with free) because you get a second completly
different configured KDE desktop on the TVout (so you see I'm using KDE). So
some parts of KDE are started twice. As a result you also get a desktop1
folder in your home directory.
I'm still a newbie to linux so I don't really know how and why I get this
second independent KDE desktop on TVout, but you will know...
Just to give feedback that Tvout can work...
Thank you very much for your help...
P.S.: But to be honest: The quality is not the same as in windows. I can't get
it to use the full TV screen (overscan) and it is much more blurry compared
to windows... Perhaps I can do something about that later...
