Default gnome3, thinkpad 510, switching monitor configurations

Has anyone had any issues switching monitor configurations? Once
docked I can mirror my displays but as soon as I try to disable my
laptop video and primarily use the connected vga I just get a blank
screen. I dont think its an xorg issue because within kde i can cycle
through all monitor configurations without any issues.

here is my xrandr output

I have the same issue with the same machine. I also can't run with two
external monitors without gnome ending up in fallback mode.

I've not seen a bug for your issue yet. I was planning on putting one
together, but if you beat me to it, please let me know (so I can add
info).

Thanks.

I created the bz here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=712229

I attached a sosreport for them, though not sure how much they pay
attention to it.

ran sosreport with:

# sosreport -o general,filesys,hardware,kernel,x11

Thanks

Adam-

I am experiencing the same issue with a Thinkpad T61 while docked. My
problem started when I switched from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14. The
problem also occurs when I boot from a Fedora 15 Live CD.

I have bee able to work around the problem by leaving my T61 lid open
while in the docking station. I am able to get the VGA port to display
only if the lid is open. Also the problem appears to be worse when
using the Nvidia display drivers vs. Nouveau drivers.

Strange issue indeed.

Charlie
