Last modified: 2014-01-09 21:43:56 EST
Description of problem: Dell E6430s not able to use two external monitors after yum update.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3.10.11-200.fc19 - working
3.11.1-200.fc19 - not working
3.11.4-201.fc19 - not working
Boot to kernel version 3.10.11-200.fc19, two external monitors will work. Reboot to any of the newer kernels, only one external monitor will work. An error will be displayed during start up (something like 'CRT 65' error)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up two external monitors under 3.10.11-200.fc19
2. Yum update to any newer kernel version (3.11.1-200.fc19 or 3.11.4-201.fc19)
3. Boot to the new kernel version.
Error detecting more than one external monitor
Should detect two external monitors

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************
We apologize for the inconvenience. There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale. Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 19 kernel bugs.
Fedora 19 has now been rebased to 3.12.6-200.fc19. Please test this kernel update (or newer) and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.
If you have moved on to Fedora 20, and are still experiencing this issue, please change the version to Fedora 20.
If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
besides testing with 3.12.6 can you also upload output of "lspci -nvvv", "dmidecode" and also upload /var/log/messages and /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
Thanks Michelle, and others, for taking time to look into this issue. Unfortunately, I cannot provide further info as my Dell Unit has been stolen (too bad!). I am using a different Unit now running on Fedora 20. Again, thanks a lot for your efforts! :-)
