When trying to use the laptop Fn-F8 key to switch between LCD and CRT, the CRT
screen usually pulls up complete rubbish (the laptop screen stays showing the
correct X session). For reference, this used to work with the XFree86 tree (and
the binary nVidia driver). I haven't found a way to effect the switch; even
booting on CRT alone produces the VGA messages but corrupts the screen when X
starts. This behaviour has been consistent since I installed FC3 on my laptop
three months ago.

I think I'm seeing the same problem. My external monitor is a 1600x1200
ViewSonic VP201b LCD screen. I get some pretty colors, but nothing useful.
This is even the case with a low resolution of 1280x1024,
which the internal and external monitors support.
Using the vesa driver, it works fine, though I only get
- Haiku appears to have a driver that can support some dual-head configurations.
Sorry about the phenomenal bug spam, guys. Adding xorg-team@ to the QA contact so bugs don't get lost in future.
There's no way I can support hotkey switching in nv. Sorry.

What is the matter? Missing docs? Or whatever?
Is there anything I can do to help with that?
What would You suggest?
Re-closing. For recent systems, you should be able to get the hotkey events from acpid and use RandR.
