X screen is screwed up. Probably off sync
Debian testing. on Intel atom
Problem started when kernel was upgraded to 2.6.38.
NOT dual monitor!!
On VGA screen, supposed to be 1280x1024, only 1280x800 is active. (This is the best guess, I am not positive.) About 20% at the bottom stays blank.
When X is started (xfce4). According to xfce4 display setup menu, two screens are active, one is correct HP 17", the other laptop (LVDS).
Without i915 module loaded on boot, it starts with something like full screen 320x240 mode, and once i915 is loaded, the symptom above happens.
Kernel document (intelfb) reads that default is 1280x800, but no document for i915.
If only default could set to 1280x1024, things go well.
Where can I find options for i915?
Is i915 appropriate for my system? (lshw says N10 family)
