Default No DVI on Dell M1710 using Dock

So I got a D-Dock for my Dell XPS M1710 but I cant get the DVI working in linux when I have it hooked up to the D-Dock, it works fine in windows, when i unhook it from the dock and re-run startx it works fine. When I run startx the LED on the monitor goes blue for a second, then back to orange, I even tried to get twinview working but that didnt work either, any ideas? here are the two nvidia-bug-report.log files:

I'm not entirely clear on what isn't working here. Is the internal display not working when attached to the dock, or an external display or both?

At a minimum, I'd suggest removing "ConnectedMonitor" & "TwinViewOrientation" from xorg.conf, and if that fails to make a difference, please generate an updated bug report.

Thanks,
Lonni

only the internal display works, and the external never works in any situation as soon as the driver is initialized, it only works in the console before X is loaded.

It did the same thing when I used only one display but I decided to try to get it to to use both displays to see if it would work. Also if you see the log file even though I had twinview set I didnt have any of the modes or anything set because I forgot to comment out the last option if you see the log it says:

(==) NVIDIA(0): Video key set to default value of 0x83e
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Cannot use option "TwinViewOrientation" when TwinView is not
(WW) NVIDIA(0): enabled

So I dont think it was using twinview at that time, however when I tried twinview before only one display would work.

well I never got a reply, which is kind of annoying. Like i said, twinview wasnt even actually activated, and i got a picture when using the same config when not hooked up through my d-dock. Just to add, I also tried a sabayon linux live cd and it had the same problem, no picture through d-dock. This pretty much prevents me from using linux on my laptop so it is a big issue for me.

LOL, fixed the problem, i guess this obviously isnt very well known, otherwise the nvidia people here shoulda told me the fix very very quickly.

I noticed this in the log:

(--) NVIDIA(0): Found 2 CRTCs on board
(II) NVIDIA(0): Supported display device(s): CRT-0, DFP-0, DFP-1, DFP-2, TV-0

So I was wodnering why i had 3 DFP devices, there should only be two, so I thought hmm, maybe I will try DFP-2 instead of DFP-1 and wholla, it worked. Both DFP devices seemed to get the EDID data from the monitor though, which did not help in my confusion, when I changed that option now my log looks like:

(**) NVIDIA(0): Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP-2"
(**) NVIDIA(0): Enabling RENDER acceleration
(**) NVIDIA(0): ConnectedMonitor string: "DFP-2"
(II) NVIDIA(0): NVIDIA GPU GeForce Go 7900 GS at PCI:1:0:0
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoRAM: 262144 kBytes
(--) NVIDIA(0): VideoBIOS: 05.71.22.16.13
(II) NVIDIA(0): Detected PCI Express Link width: 16X
(--) NVIDIA(0): Interlaced video modes are supported on this GPU
(--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on GeForce Go 7900 GS at
(--) NVIDIA(0): PCI:1:0:0:
(--) NVIDIA(0): Dell 3007WFP (DFP-2)
(--) NVIDIA(0): Dell 3007WFP (DFP-2): 165.0 MHz maximum pixel clock
(--) NVIDIA(0): Dell 3007WFP (DFP-2): Internal Single Link TMDS
(II) NVIDIA(0): Assigned Display Device: DFP-2
(II) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes:
(II) NVIDIA(0): "1280x800"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "1024x768"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "800x600"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "640x480"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1280 x 800
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No size information available in DFP-2's EDID; cannot compute
(WW) NVIDIA(0): DPI from EDID.
(==) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (75, 75); computed from built-in default


Well I hope this is usefull for anyone else who has issue like I did.
