Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 199509
XOrg config has incorrect monitor section
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 with the integrated Intel GMA 950, and an external
Dell 2407WFP (24" LCD) monitor. Having installed FC5 from the DVD, my
xorg.config file contains a Monitor section only for the external monitor, not
for the laptop screen. Moreover, when I enabled dual screen mode, it created a
second Monitor section for the external monitor, and unsurprisingly failed to
start X in dual head mode reporting "Device Already In Use". Updating (via yum)
has not changed the behaviour.
How reproducible: Happens every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5 with external monitor connected.
2. [inspect xorg.config and see the one monitor section]
3. Enable dual head.
See above: X fails to start.
X should detect both monitors, irrespective of which one it chooses as the
default display. Enabling dual head should work!
Wrong component... reassigning...
Do you still see this in FC7t2?
