Sol 11 express X86:Dual monitor config,max resolution

Hello!
I have some X86 desktop computer with G45 embedded dual-head video.
Two monitors can be configured, but with "small" problem: the summ of dimensions in any direction (vert or horis) can't exceed 1680 pix- max sizeof virtual screen area.
Attempts to edit "videoram" parameter in xorg.conf failed.
Any minds?

get_desktop_resolution(3alleg4) 				  Allegro manual				   get_desktop_resolution(3alleg4)

NAME
get_desktop_resolution - Finds out the desktop resolution. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> int get_desktop_resolution(int *width, int *height); DESCRIPTION
Finds out the currently selected desktop resolution. You can use this information to avoid creating windows bigger than the current resolu- tion. This is especially important for some windowed drivers which are unable to create windows bigger than the desktop. Each parameter is a pointer to an integer where one dimension of the screen will be stored. Under some OSes, switching to a full screen graphics mode may automatically change the desktop resolution. You have, therefore, to call this function before setting any graphics mode in order to retrieve the real desktop resolution. Example: int width, height; allegro_init(); ... if (get_desktop_resolution(&width, &height) == 0) { /* Got the resolution correctly */ } RETURN VALUE
Returns zero on success, or a negative number if this information is not available or does not apply, in which case the values stored in the variables you provided for `width' and `height' are undefined. SEE ALSO
