Hello everyone: 

Please...
This is my question today:
I am trying to use my laptop with 2 monitors but I hit this bug:
https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1064 

I also know that this is my file:
http://cvs.freedesktop.org/xorg/xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/drivers/i810/ 
i830_driver.c?rev=1.30&view=log 

There is however, another i830_driver.c in:
http://cvs.freedesktop.org/xorg/xc/programs/Xserver/hw/xfree86/drivers/i810/ 

How in the UNIVERSE, do I know which one I need, download it, recompile it, 
and move it to the appropriate location?
Would it be possible to build a BLFS pacth for this?
Do I have to recompile the whole X enchilada to fix this?
This is not your average configure-make-make install song...  :(

PS:  Research is what I do when I don't know what I am doing...
