This isn't the only resolution listed with these warrnings. There's a 1024x768 setting with similar warnings, but the warning messages say "1280x1024". What am I missing here?

Thanks - Bob

Unsure if this helps but i notice you said you are using the 915resolution patch.
from your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file it looks like X is using the i810 driver.. Could this be the problem ?
also, i assume you have the patch loading each time you reboot? i think i have mine in /etc/init.d/rcS in Ubuntu

Graz -

The i810 driver is for all of the chipsets in that family (there are at least 6 or 7, of which the 915G in my machine is one).

Yes, 915resolution is being run at bootup (it's in the /etc/rcX.d directories as a symlink).

Hmmmm...I found an "i915" module, which does load with modprobe, but X can't seem to find it (tells me "no such module", even when it's already loaded).

Code:
root@vader:/home/rcs# lsmod | grep i915
i915                   21664  1
drm                    78484  2 i915
root@vader:/home/rcs# lsmod | grep drm
drm                    78484  2 i915
agpgart                36784  3 drm,intel_agp
Could you show me the relevant parts of your xorg.conf file???

Thanks very much...Bob

Similar issue

Mailbyte, I'm walking down a similar path. My Dell gx620 will not generate a 1280x1024 mode. I found this bug report that points to a utility you may need called 855resolution. try adding a mode to match your needs.

https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=643 (See the comments)

Don't know if this is still live, but those modes listed in the dvt file correspond to the registers on pages 405+ of w w w.i n t e l.c o m/design/chipsets/manuals/29802601.pdf. There is an entry for 1280x720@60hz on page 484. Now if I could just find a win2k driver that support this mode...

Cheers

Well, I finally got tired of beating myself over the head with this and bought an Athlon-64, a motherboard, and a cheap NVidia video card for a total of about $129. The combo is working fine under Mandriva Linux x86_64 and Ubuntu 6.06 at 1280x720.

Anyway, just to let you know - I had put WinXP on the machine just to check to see if it was *capable* of doing 1280x720 @ 60hz...it is, as I had mentioned before. The video drivers on Intel's site will allow it to work in this resolution in Windows.

HTH - Bob

I use Slackware and someone pointed me towards using xorgsetup instead of xorgconfig. Rather than ask me for settings it guessed them. It solved my problem instantly.

I think this is because you are using the tv-out... it would be like using your display without the hack... just my guess...
