ATI RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600 M10] Dual Display Laptop/Monitor


Please, please, please, I hope someone can offer some assistance - I have spent the last 8 hrs on this - and have almost cracked it (but not quite)!

I have an HP NC6000 laptop with ATI Technologies Inc RV350 [Mobility Radeon 9600 M10] graphics.

I want to display 1024x768 on the laptop screen, with extended desktop at 1280x1024 to an attached monitor.

What I have currently managed is 1024x768 to both, and ONLY when I 'startx' followed by 'xrandr --output VGA-0 --pos 1280x0'.

I have TWO problems then:

1. Getting the extended desktop to 'come up' first time, without having to xrandr the extended desktop to the right position, and

2. Getting the monitor to display at 1280x1024.

Here is xorg.conf:
Code:
