I can start X (runlevel 5 or startx) on the 17" monitor, then move the DVI cable to the 20" then running in 1280x1024 mode, even bump to 1400x1050@60Hz via KDE session settings.
Comment 7 Jerry Amundson 2008-10-13 11:21:23 EDT
With the latest from rawhide installed this morning, I have a beautiful 1600x1200@60Hz display on the Dell 2001FP monitor. Yippee!
