Unfortunately, panels don't usually show up when probing via DDC for
whatever reason.  What video chipset does the Vaio use?  If you file a
bug report and attach /var/log/XFree86.0.log, it might have the
information to do the hack-ish detection we use successfully on some
laptops.

Nope, it's setting up the RPM transaction set and looking for
conflicting files and things like that.  It's not the sort of thing that
can be bypassed, unfortunately.
