New Dell E6420 Laptop with Docking station and dual monitors.
My docking station has 1 vga port and 2 DVI ports. Fedora 17 does not see the two DVI ports is only sees the VGA port which seems to work fine.
How do I get Fedora to recgonize the two DVI ports?
Info on what I have checked:
Checked the video displays:
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
1600x900 60.0 + 40.1
800x600 60.3 56.2
VGA1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 509mm x 286mm
1280x1024 75.0 60.0
1024x768 75.1 70.1 60.0
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 72.8 75.0 66.7 60.0
Checked video cards:
$ lspci -v | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GF108 [Quadro NVS 4200M] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
The above is actually kind of curious as to why two video cards show up. It's a laptop, why would it have two?
Checked which driver is loading:
$ tail -30 /var/log/Xorg.0.log
[ 18165.901] (II) intel(0): EDID vendor "HSP", prod id 5832

Looks like it is loading the intel
So the question is, how do I get Fedora 17 to use the two DVI ports on the docking station instead of just the VGA port on the dock?
Also this is annoying but not critical:
I'm having to start the laptop with the monitor open in order to see the login screen. Once I log in as my user I have the system settings to turn off the laptop monitor and only use the external VGA. I would prefer to start the system closed and get the login on the external monitor.
Also I can never close the laptop monitor all the way, If I do it goes to sleep or whatever. How do I get that to not go to sleep. I can't find any settings for that.
Oh, running both Gnome 3 and KDE. KDE seems to have better settings in system settings but nothing seems to solve the issues I have described.
