xorg virtual screen


Hi
How to get rid of the virtual Screen
Radeon 7000 Ve
I am runnning mandrake 10.1 community fully udated. With Xorg and can not remove the virtual screen.
After googling i tried editing the Xorg.conf as follows
Default Colour depth changed from Virtual 800x600 to Modes "800x600" "640x480"
but after reeboot still have a virtual screen @ 800x600.
On previous mandrake distros i have not had this poblem .
Thanks in advance .
Regards
Sharkee

If by "Virtual Screen" you mean that the display pans around (in which case "virtual screen" is a misnomer...), try [CTRL][ALT][+] and see if you can make it stop this way.

Thanks for reply . No go with ctrl alt + . I can get 640x480 without virtual using the size & rotate applet. Here is my xorg.conf.

Hi
After further investigation of var log xorg i found that there was a clone being used with the wrong horizontal sync & Vertical refresh rates. I added an option for clone in the device section of my xorg.conf now works fine.
Option "CloneHSync" "30.0-70.0"
Option "CloneVRefresh" "55.0-120.0"

Regards
sharkee
