I have asked several times on IRC about this, but got no response, thus I am writing to the list.
I have an old laptop that has a broken LCD. The upper and right part are corrupt and I would like to position the X
output some few cm below the upper and right edges of the screen. I tried to achieve the above with xorg.conf and
using xrandr, but so far my attempts have failed.
I am running gentoo linux with Xorg version x11-base/xorg-server-1.13.1.
The laptop is Dell Inspiron 1200 with intel 915 video card inside.

Hope this picture above will not get scrambled. If the bigger rectangle is the whole screen, I'd like to have X
occupying the smaller rectangle, the rest to stay unused.
Any hints and suggestions are welcome.
Please do not remove my email when you reply as I am not subscribed to the list.
