Projector configuration for intel i945 ( i810 ) driver for Solaris

Recently installed Solaris Express build 70 in couple of laptops which had Intel 945 chipsets . So enabled compiz-fusion on them with the help of Erwann's  Compiz-fusion packages . Next step was to configure display for projector. Below procedure should work for Intel chipsets which uses i945 (i810) driver.  To make laptop projector aware add the following lines in /etc/X11/xorg.conf in Section "Device" . Note that you need to modify BusID for your Laptop / Desktop requirement.

 <snip>
BusID     "PCI:0:2:0"  # modify it for your laptop / desktop
Option    "Clone" "true"
Option    "MonitorLayout" "CRT,LFP"

<snip>
 

Sample section

<code>

You can have a look at the sample xorg.conf from Solaris Express build 70 . I have tested with  Intel 945 GM chipset  .

But how do I find the BusID out???

By default any configured xorg.conf will have the BusID of the VGA controller . Check the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, if missing then check /etc/X11/.xorg.conf file.
