Description Marius Andreiana 2005-08-31 22:31:12 UTC
Booted notebook. While in GUI added external monitor. Image displays on both.
Pressing Fn + CRT/LCD switch has no effect.
Switched to a text console, CRT/LCD switching works there. Back to X, image
displays again on both monitors.

This is a DELL Latitude D600 with Fedora Core 4.

I haven't tried rebooting/restarting X with external monitor added.

Initially reported to redhat at

what sort of graphics chip does your computer have?  If you have a radeon, you
can use the "bioshotkeys" option to enable hotkey switching, however this option
is only available in cvs.  If you have a radeon is a duplicate of bug 2000.

It's Radeon, thank you Alex
