I just found out that using an external VGA monitor is easier than
expected. Just plug the monitor in, then restart X (otherwise you won't
see anything). No need to change the xorg.conf. The resolution on the
monitor is automatically set to the highest one that fits into 1600x900.
I tested it with an Asus VW 222U and got 1440x900. This means that 160
pixel at the right are missing, but I can live with that.
Don't change the resolution with xrandr; this causes the notebook LCD to
go black, and stay black, until X is restarted.
I'm still interested in a more complete and flexible solution,
preferably one that doesn not rely on additional software provided by
SuSE, Ubuntu or the like.
