It seems to me that the problem may arise
from the lack of config-system-display in CentOS-6.

I see that under CentOS-5.6 the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf
was created by config-system-display .
The corresponding file under CentOS-6 is very short:
Section "Device"
        Identifier "Videocard0"
        Driver "vesa"
Is this file used at all in CentOS-6?

According to
"The system-config-display tool has been replaced
by XRandr configuration tools"
Unfortunately I've no idea how to use XRandR,
and the documentation for this is not much help.
