Just installed fedora 13 on one of my beloved lenovo x60s’s. after a
sudo yum upgrade
its a quite nice point-and-click distro! only problem i had was that X discovered, and expanded my desktop to, two monitors. quite odd as i only got the one (even more so as the x60s only got one video-out)!
when checking the log i found it:
cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep monitor [ 28.312] (**) | |-->Monitor "<default monitor>" [ 28.312] (==) No monitor specified for screen "Default Screen Section". Using a default monitor configuration. [ 28.672] (II) intel(0): Output LVDS1 using monitor section LVDS1 [ 28.787] (II) intel(0): Output VGA1 has no monitor section
LVDS1?? simply disabling it worked as a charm tho
sudo touch /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/01-disable-DVI.conf # open it in your editor of choice and enter Section "Monitor" Identifier "LVDS1" Option "Ignore" "true" EndSection
When choosing a music-player i went with deadbeef, imo the best one as it does what its supposed to do and isnt trying to be something else! After installing it i plugged in my cheapest-on-the-shelf usb-speakers, to get em to work i messed around with alsa and asound.conf for about five minutes before i went the gui-way and installed pulse audio control
sudo yum install pavucontrol
and pointed and clicked my way there!
