I'm experiencing problems with a laptop being used in a dual monitor (non-mirrored) configuration. The bug reporter (<removed because="" i="" was="" not="" allowed="" to="" post="">) wants a component, but nothing appears appropriate to me. For example, there's no 'video' component, and there's a bunch of less than helpful 'xorg-XXX-YYY' entries.

What 'component' should I chose for a bug report on video issues in dual monitor configuration?

New posters with no karma aren't allowed to post links to prevent link-spamming. Right now, nobody has anywhere enough information to be able to advise you. The first thing we need to know is what video card you're running, so run this command in a terminal (without quotes) "lspci | grep VGA" and post the output as a comment below mine.

Thanks sideburns. I don't think I would call a link to Fedora's Bugzilla a potential spam link. Its part of Fedora's network, and not an arbitrary external link.

True, but the forum's software can't tell the difference. To it, a link is a link. Now, if you'll give us some more info about your hardware, somebody might be able to help you.

It might also be a good idea to describe the problems you are experiencing, to get help writing a better bug report.

Thnaks guys. I filed the report and the Bugzilla folks figured it out. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1047684.
