I've just installed OpenSUSE 11.1 on my Elonex Webbook
as I want to start playing with Mono.
Unfortunately, there seems to be some problem with the video card, and it only seems to recognise it as VESA, and won't give me a higher resolution than 800x600.
The video card (VIA Unichrome Pro II apparently), will support 1024x600, but OpenSuse won't have it.
I have been able to successfully run this netbook on 1024x600 on Windows (XP and Win7), and on Ubuntu, however, I'd much rather use OpenSuse as its Novell backed (as is Mono...)
Would appreciate any suggestions, and please bear in mind, I'm a newbie on Linux (at the moment)....
Oh, and I have tried changing the xorg.conf file following these instructions
but that also didn't work.
Have also installed the openChrome driver from here
but that also doesn't give me anything.
I have also tried changing the screen resolution in the graphics app on opensuse, and that, while it does say 1024x600, and tests ok, doesn't boot on it.
