Re: Intel graphics users: send me your VBIOS

I have a question: is there any way to disable lvds and use vga as the
primary, the sony phoenix bios has no options leaving me 60% blind
with a cracked panel. I guess there might be a bit in nvram.

xrandr --output LVDS -off
xrandr --auto

something like that (it may be LVDS-0 or LVDS-1 or something, just look
at the output of plain 'xrandr'). To make it semi-permanent, make the
change in gnome-display-properties; the layout you set in
gnome-display-properties is saved across GNOME sessions as your user. To
make it completely solid across all X sessions for all users, you can do
it in xorg.conf , following the syntax documented here:

That reminds me, I am seeing xrandr settings not persist across
suspend/resume - which component is that best filed against - kernel
or xorg?

OK, filed as BZ #525939. Seems related to BZ #520068 (reported against kernel).
