http://crunchbanglinux.org – I frequently use my laptop with a dual monitor or projector, so I hope somebody can help me here. In alpha 1, I used to be able to control a second display with xrandr very easily. In alpha 2, something goes wrong. Whenever I activate the second display, using either xrandr at the command line, or grandr, I get an almost completely unresponsive system.Here's the output of xrandr with the second monitor plugged in:Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1280 x 800, maximum 8192 x 8192 VGA1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 1280x1024 60.0 + 75.0 (HowTos)
