Are you serious? This bug is considered invalid. Everyone that has a laptop
using an external monitor should know to go and activate dual head adapter? As
I stated.. THIS WORKED.. Works on a fresh install of openSUSE 10.3 and breaks
right when the 100.14.19 driver is installed. openSUSE 10.2 used to work with
10.14.11, but when upgraded to 10.14.19 it is broken. Also as stated, I don't
believe it is an xorg issue (and possibly nothing needed to be added to
xorg.conf, but an issue more with the nvidia binary installer.

I believe I just saw another bug report with this same issue on a Dell D830. He
got the same behavior after installing the nvidia driver, and someone that
doesn't have much of a tech background, will only know how to swap monitors
using FN + F8 and would not know to go and configure a Dual Head Monitor.

To me, this is a VERY VERY basic and critical function to have automatic output
withtout extra configuration.
