After booting, "startx" just blanks the laptop screen. That makes the CD rather useless.
If a second monitor is connected at boot time, that will be used for all interaction, and "startx" will display on that monitor. But that's a poor choice, all around.
Here's how to use the CD on a standalone Acer Ferrari 4005 laptop.
(1) boot normally
(2) at the prompt, type:
mv /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
(3) Put the following lines in the file:
In Section "Monitor"
ModeLine "1680x1050" 121 1680 1704 1792 1876 1050 1051 1054 1065 -hsync +vsync
In Section "Device"
Option "MonitorLayout" "LVDS"
Option "PanelSize" "1680x1050"
(4) back out of the editor, type:
It would be a really great thing if these adjustments to xorg.conf were part of the standard setup when this machine boots up.
