The initial report indicates silicon image video hardware, however the log
file attached from the X server indicates that Intel video hardware is
present in the system:
(II) PCI: 00:02:0: chip 8086,2582 card 103c,3005 rev 04 class 03,00,00 hdr 80
An examination of the X server config file indicates that it is not properly
configured for dualhead configuration. In multihead configurations, each
device section must mandatorily have a BusID specified.
This is a config issue rather than an X server/driver bug, so closing as
"NOTABUG". If you require technical support in order to resolve the issue
however, you can contact Red Hat support services directly for official
support at http://www.redhat.com/support or via telephone at 1-888-RED-HAT1
depending on the type of support contract you have.
Hope this helps.
