Vaio VCPF1 nVidia drivers and external monitors
Using the current (as of 8/10/12) nVidia drivers (295.71), on openSUSE 11.4 x64, on a Vaio VPCF1 laptop.
Previously, all was working well..until I went to do a presentation, and discovered that the external monitors (both HDMI and VGA), didn't work, and I couldn't switch to them. To get them working, add the following lines to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file, in the Device section:
Best part? You don't have to monkey around with your X config file...the changes are temporary (unless you click the "save to x configuration file" button).
The EnableBrightnessControl option will let the Vaio's FN keys for brightness actually work, and adjust the brightness.
These are only tested on openSUSE 11.4 so far, but SHOULD work on other distros too. Please post here if these things work for you.
