Default Clarification over Alpha 1 and dual monitors

Well I got it to detect both monitors for a little bit. At first all it
would show was my secondary monitor which was not activated. After I set
the correct resolution and restarted the x server, It showed a second
monitor which I presumed to be my laptop's monitor. After I set that
resolution, I tried to reset the x server again and got the following error:

/etc/gdm/failsavexserver: line47
[: too many arguments warning: could not retrieve EDID because set-edid
is not installed (1): error: this program does not know how to configure
the "10 shared/default-x-server doesnt exist. X server warning:Could not
generate /etc/X11/xorg.conf.failsafe for vesa driver.
