I have XFree86 4.3 running on an IBM ThinkPad X23 laptop; the screen has a maximum resolution of 1024x768. If I plug in an external monitor with a larger screen, and then hit F7 to get the monitor on, it will still show up as 1024x768, just larger.
What sections do I need to set up in my XF86Config-4 file to enable different resolutions for an external monitor? I'm not clear on the differences between Section "Monitor" and the Section "Screen" (where resolutions appear to be set). And specifically, how do I then switch from monitor to monitor, so that I'm using a particular one for the external monitor, with bigger resolution, and a different one for the laptop screen, with a smaller resolution (i.e. something like "hit F7")? What if I had the possibility of several different external monitors, with different resolutions? I'm using Gnome2 if that matters, on FreeBSD 4.8. The computer uses the ATI Radeon Mobility card. Thanks.
