resolution overclocking using Ubuntu netbook Remix 10.04 on an asus eee 4G netbook


First of all I apologise if this is in the wrong thread.. or ive done this wrong in any way shape or form..

So first of all i finally managed to hunt down the specs for this pissy little netbook, only to find after relentless searching on why i cant change from 800x480 to 1024x600, that this model of EEE pc doesnt support anything higher than 800x480 at the 10:1 ratio...

Firstly my question is, is it ACTUALLY possible to 'overclock' this type of netbook to run a higher res?

if the answer to that question is yes, then how can i do this?

im running ubtuntu netbook remix 10.04 and am new to linux (again, so sorry) so be nice, and ive tried getting my head around this 'sudo' stuff, and the xorg.conf file (which is nowhere to be found) and ive even tried a program calld astray but im pretty sure ive exhausted my patience as trying to self-teach . . .

thanks for any input!

oh and ive also tried to muck around with xrandr or whatever that command was.. but i cant really get my head around it, and it kept telling me the resolution didnt exist ect...

I believe the answer to your first question is no.

Xorg no longer needs an xorg.conf file for many displays. You can always create one
(open a terminal window, then, as root, Xorg -configure :1) and copy the resulting file, xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Best you can do with your new xorg.conf file is edit it to create a larger virtual screen into which your display will be a movable 800x480 window.
