I have a netbook I want to use in order to do some video editing. I am planning to buy a bigger, wider screen. Presumably even if the wider screen runs in a different resolution than my netbook screen, that should be OK. But I want to make sure that the screen I buy works well with the netbook.
linux-3g16:/home/me # lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation N10 Family DMI Bridge 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller 00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation N10 Family Integrated Graphics Controller linux-3g16:/home/me # xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 600, maximum 4096 x 4096 LVDS1 connected 1024x600+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 223mm x 125mm 1024x600 60.0*+ 800x600 60.3 56.2 640x480 59.9 VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
So that tells me that the maximum resolution I can expect to get is 4096x4096, right? But how do I list all available display modes. The screen I want may be wider than usual.
