Screen resolution of Debian 505-i386-kde-CD-1


I just installed debian lenny KDE 5.5, when installing the screen was busy at 100% but when I first loggin in, at least I Had 75% of screen resolution. less than 102x768. What can I do? this new serie résoletion screen but the system allows me to be in graphical mode. To be clear, the system gives me at least 800x400.
i'm using Toshiba Tecra M1 with a standard vga graphic adapter

We need to know what hardware you have and what driver you are using.

The hardware can be found with the following command:
Code:
lspci | grep -i vga

The driver being used can probably be found with:
Code:
grep LoadModule /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Opps, sorry I meant to reply, but forgot. I don't have time to help right now, but I'll try to give a proper answer within the next 24 hours.

Ok, I had a quick look. Hopefully the following might help.

I looks like the correct driver is in the xserver-xorg-video-trident package. To make sure it is installed please run the following command as root.
Code:
aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-trident
(However, from the grep above, I think it is already installed)

Also can you now please post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log file and your
/etc/X11/xorg.conf file if you have one.


Cheers,

Evo2.

I think you need to install the firmware for this card. See:

http://wiki.debian.org/ipw2200

Basically you just need to make sure you have "non-free" in your /etc/apt/sources.list and then install the pacakge as root:

Code:
apt-get install firmware-ipw2x00
If you don't have a wired connection on this machine, download the file on another machine (or os)
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/pool...lenny2_all.deb

Then transfer the file to your debian machine. Now install the package as root:
Code:
dpkg -i /path/to/file/firmware-ipw2x00_0.14+lenny2_all.deb
In the above "/path/to/file/" is the location of the file on your machine.

Cheers,

Evo2.
