I'm trying to get a Macbook Air to work with a Korean IPS. It's not a big deal -- I have it set up on my Linux machine, but I'd like to be able to watch some videos (Amazon Prime HD) that don't work on Linux.

I have a Mini DisplayPort <--> DVI connector, and a dual-link DVI cable. The cable works with my Linux desktop (which has a GeForce — setup notes). When I plug the Mini DisplayPort into the Macbook Air, I get the following in /var/log/system.log,

In particular, the Fatal error remapping framebuffer sounds like it's something that could be fixed with different configuration .... Unfortunately, the Apple System tools are unhelpful; the displays settings shows nothing; the System Information thunderbolt section says nothing is connected.
