Re: xinerama with Radeon 9600 on x86_64

So I bought a new Radeon 9600. It works fine with one monitor but it's capable of handling two. I'd like to do xinerama with it (and I have config'd xinerama by hand successfully in the past). I tried it with system-config-display but it will not do it (it tries but then it will not close) and I've tried it manually. I also took a look at getting the proprietary drivers from ATI but they don't dupport 64 bit yet.

Has anybody gotten this to work with the open source radeon drivers?

Alright... simply to get it into the archives so it's earchable I am going to submit the solution I finally came up with for this. I got some help from a nice user in the #xorg channel on freenode and I have it working now. Attached is my xorg.conf file. Hopefully it may help someone who has the same issues.
