Description of problem:
First Plugin the display in the VGA socket of the laptop.
When KMS is enabled, I use graphics "display preference" to set the dual head. It gives an error "The selected configuration could not be found"
If I use :
xrandr --output LVDS1 --left-of VGA1
It does not do anything. Only the VGA display is on and the laptop's LVDS display is off not even mirror the VGA's display.
If I use
xrandr --output LVDS1 --auto
It says: xrandr: cannot find crtc for output LVDS1
Here is my xrandr info:

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

[This is a bulk message for all open Fedora Rawhide Xorg-related bugs. I'm adding myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
I'm having a similar issue on up to date F11 on X200s, it's just another way around.
If I try to enable external display with
xrandr --auto OR xrandr --output VGA1 --auto
the result is:
xrandr: cannot find crtc for output VGA1
The workaround is to run these commands first.
jadetukka:~$ xrandr --output DVI1 --off
jadetukka:~$ xrandr --output DVI2 --off
After those I can use xrandr to enable external display in the normal way.
My xrandr output just in case (when I've done steps mentioned above):
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 531mm x 298mm
800x600 60.3 56.2
LVDS1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 261mm x 163mm
DVI1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI2 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Reporter, any comments on comment 4, please?
My problems disappeared after upgrading to F12
Same for me, F12 solved the issue, on x86_64 for me.
Thank you for letting us know.
