Multiple monitors; but just use one for X11?

  1. Hi all,

    I use an SGI machine at work and connect via xdm from MacOS 10.4 using
    the following command:

    /usr/X11R6/bin/X -query o2

    This produces a desktop that spans both my laptop and the external
    display screen.

    Is it possible to run X11 but restrict it to taking up just the laptop
    screen, thus leaving the external monitor free to run macos apps?

    I don't want to run "rootless" as I like to have the desktop on the

    Thanks in advance,
