http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Been banging my head against this for a while. I can't get my external monitor working with the nouveau driver. I've previously had dual monitors working with the nVidia driver. My laptop is running Fedora 16 (3.4.6-1.fc16.x86_64). Graphics card is nVidia: Code: $ lspci | grep VGA 02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce GTX 285M] (rev a2) xrandr is showing the monitor is connected: Code: $ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3840 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192 LVDS-1 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm (HowTos)
