Question Enable extended desktop in Fedora 10(Cambridge) kernel version 2.6.27.24-170.2.68.fc1


Hi guys, i have the following VGA chip on my toshiba laptop :Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller (rev 03).

The output for my xorg.conf file is as follows

Quote:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "single head configuration"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

EndSection

Section "Monitor"

Option "dpms"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "intel"

EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"

I am trying to have an extended desktop using a second 19inch IBM monitor model type 9497 but I have already installed the display control snap-in using

Code:
# yum install system-config-display
It is detecting the other monitor but it is duplicating the laptop screen to the 19inch instead of extending the desktop
