nouveau dual head


I'm on an hp elitebook 8530w with fc14 on it and I am trying the "nouveau" driver. It works for the laptop screen itself, but not for my external monitor (I could dual head with the proprietary driver). This is what xrandr says:

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1200, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS-1 connected 1920x1200+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 331mm x 207mm
   1920x1200      60.0*+   59.9  
   1920x1080      60.0  
   1600x1200      59.9  
   1680x1050      60.0  
   1400x1050      60.0  
   1280x1024      59.9  
   1280x960       59.9  
   1152x864       60.0  
   1024x768       59.9  
   800x600        59.9  
   640x480        59.4  
   720x400        59.6  
   640x400        60.0  
   640x350        59.8  
DVI-D-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-D-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
VGA-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
I noticed the 'puter started using nouveaufb as soon as I removed the nvidia proprietary driver packages, I don't know if that has anything to do with it - this also seems compiled in the kernel statically and I don't know how to disable it.

Anyone an idea?
