Dual screen Fedora 16 on intel D525MW

Hi all,

I just installed Fedora 16 (LXDE) on an intel D525MW board. During the installation (anaconda) I got the screens in "dual monitor" mode. As far as I can see there is only one monitor connection (vga). I solved that problem with the "resolution=1280x1024" option. It happens in both 32bit and 64bit installations.

After installation I get both the login screen and desktop in dual screen modus, which is very irritating. I can't see one half of the desktop. Is the any way to undo that?

Thanks,

Renarios

Allright, that's quite a good option, but I'm a Redhat fan. Since I don't need X, I changed the default runlevel to init 3. Not really a solution for this issue, but it's OK.

Cheers and a merry Christmas!

Sorry, I couldn't find a solution. I installed without X. I hoped that in F17 the bug was fixed.
Maybe you can report a bug?

Is it possible to add a second monitor in the kernel boot line so that when it starts it will display on 2 monitors?
I ask this because my laptop's display is dying and until I get a replacement screen I could use my desktop's monitor.
