KVM switch - display resolution.

have a look under the screen section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf there
should be a few sub sections called "Display" if you remove all the
subsections but the one that you need I believe it would work by
defaulting to the only one which you have defined.

My "Screen" section for the second monitor looks something like this:

Section "Screen"
    Identifier  "Screen1"
    Device      "ATI GC1"
    Monitor     "Monitor1"
    DefaultDepth 24
    #Option "backingstore"

    Subsection "Display"
        Depth       24
        Modes       "1280x1024"
        ViewPort    0 0  # initial origin if mode is smaller than desktop
#        Virtual     1280 1024

Hope this helps
