I just did the mondo upgrade of the ports on my up to date 8-current
laptop. Whereas before the upgrade the default video output would always be
the monitor attached to the dock if my laptop was in the dock (which was
what I wanted), now X refuses to see the dock at all, and it will only come
up on the laptop screen.
The console works just fine on the dock's monitor, and I double-checked the
bios to make sure that the dock is set as primary video out. I also
commented out all mentions of the laptop's screen from xorg.conf, but it
steadfastly insists on coming up only on the laptop.
All my ports are up to date, including kde 3.5.8, and nvidia-driver
100.14.19. I also tried with and without the -ignoreABI option, no change.
I should also point out that I'm using kdm, but I was using it before the
upgrade too. Turning kdm off and using startx has no effect (still comes up
only on the laptop screen).
The content of /var/log/Xorg.0.log might be useful, but also try and play
with xrandr. Xrandr --verbose should tell you what outputs i actually sees,
and then you can disable/enable individual outputs and see what happens.
We're going for 'working' here. 'clean' is for people with skills...
