Was this with -ati by chance? There's a known issue here in that -ati
now uses xrandr, but displayconfig-gtk still tries to use xinerama,
which results in xorg.confs that won't work. I've talked with glatzor
about this and a fix should be in soon to at least make it not attempt
to do this kind of dual screen configuration if it's going to fail.
OTOH, I *think* you can just plug in the monitor and hit Fn+F8. I've
not tested this on an ATI laptop myself yet, so I'd love it if someone
It can also be achieved via plugging in the external monitor and doing
'randr --auto'. If that doesn't do it, I'd like to know.
