Dual Head on Dell E6410 (Intel Graphics)


I have a Dell E6410 with FC13 installed. All is working fine except for the display.
I can not get my laptop display to go to any other resolution than 1440x900.
This gives a problem when using a projector as I can not enable the option "Same image in all monitors". This is because most projectos are 1024x768

I tried creating a xorg.conf but it appears not to being used. Same sort of xorg.conf on Ubuntu 10.04 with Intel DRM kernel worked fine.

From Xorg.0.log:
[ 234.148] (II) Loading /usr/lib64/xorg/modules/drivers/intel_drv.so
[ 234.148] (II) Module intel: vendor="X.Org Foundation"

[ 234.148] Module class: X.Org Video Driver

[ 234.148] (--) using VT number 7

$ xrandr -q
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 303mm x 189mm
1440x900 60.0*+ 40.0
HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP3 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

Thanks for helping!

Re: Dual Head on Dell E6410 (Intel Graphics)

The xorg.conf won't help you much anymore. You should stick with xrandr - it's most powerful in my opinion. Read a little how to use it.
Anyway, the xrandr output you provided does not report back any output else than your normal laptop screen. Was the projector correctly connected?
