Release: IGEL Universal Desktop LX / OS Version 5.02.100

IGEL Universal Desktop OS 2
===========================
Version 5.02.100
Dec 20 2013

====================
Notes:
====================
IMPORTANT:
Dual monitor configuration for “unsupported hardware” works only if “native
driver support” works properly. It is a prerequisite to assure that the
native driver is really working, as the fallback VESA driver does not provide
any dual monitor configuration. Have a look at Application Launcher’s
About tab->Hardware-Graphics Chipset. If VESA is listed there the native
driver does not work and dual monitor configuration is not functional.
