When docked out its the notebook screen.

Expected results:
some kind of configuration for this. 
Or at least prefere the interal one.

Hopefully thats not written somewhere, i had a look through some readme's but haven't found anything about it.
Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-11-11 10:51:43 EST
right now plymouth is at the will of the driver for head configuration.  Post-F10 we're going to change plymouth over to use libdrm directly and then we'll have more control.

I'm going to move this upstream, though.
