Old dogs can learn new tricks. In this case the dog is my old Thinkpad X30 laptop and the trick is dual head output:
I've wanted to use this configuration since I got the laptop 3 years ago. I could never get the BIOS based driver to set it up and the new native-modesetting driver didn't work on the Intel 830 chipset that the laptop has. But with a little snooping around in the BIOS and some help from keithp and anholt it's now working - yay! And we're one step closer to being able to use the native modesetting intel driver by default in Fedora.
