Resolution Issues on Zenwalk 5.0 (res. limited to 1024x768)


Hello,

I wanted to try out something optimized for 686, so I picked up Zenwalk 5.0. Nice, fast distro, but it seems I can't get the resolution to go any higher than 1024x768. I have always gotten my full 1280x800 on Suse, Fedora, Ubuntu, etc, but no dice here. I tried adding in 1280x800 to both my xorg.conf AND xorg.conf-vesa to no avail. I saw a similar thread on here where a Zenwalk user had the same problem, but it didn't seem to help. Anyone got any pointers? I already tried running 'videoconfig' from text-mode, but it didn't seem to help...

I've attached my xorg.conf, if it helps any. Thanks in advance!!

-Jon

With the i810 driver it is sometimes required that you use a hack like 915resolution to get widescreen resolutions. This is because the proper modes sometimes aren't defined in the VBIOS.

There are a lot of posts on the Zenwalk boards talking about the 915resolution hack.

Ah, problem solved. Thanks for the tip, worked like a charm. My fonts were pretty nasty looking

For anyone looking on, I couldn't find the hack (don't think it's actually a driver, per se) in the Zenwalk repos, so here's the direct link to tarballs, etc:

Thanks Elliot, and good luck to anyone else with this problem.
