Description of problem:
Based on bug #697076: When I want to start system with two monitors connected, Gnome3 starts in "fallback mode". When I boot system with one monitor (gnome3 starts corectly) and I add 2nd monitor, but it isn't automaticly detected (nothing happens). I want to run gnome-control-center with display settings for add this second one but system falls down and it must be rebooted by hand.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with one monitor connected
2. Connect a 2nd monitor and if nothing happens automaticly run gnome-control-center
3. Click on Display menu
System falls down, must be rebooted by hand.
Graphic card from ATI Technologies Inc. with two outputs; product: RV370 [Radeon X300SE]
If the system is unresponsive, then the control-center has nothing to do with it.

As I wrote, I'm using live cd beta so I've add kernel parameter while booting this one. The pc was booted with one monitor, after successful boot I added another monitor and grabed log files..
Could you please try with the released Fedora 15 (LiveCD is on http://fedoraproject.org/get-fedora)?
System is ok after running "display settings" (doesn'fall down), but there are still two problems:
- with two monitors connected gnome is in fallback mode
- external monitor is still disabled (black) after connecting and enabling it at display settings
Both of this is mentioned in bug #697076
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
