Resolution 1024 x 600


I installed Mint 11 (Katya) without problems on Asus eeepc 1000he ... but I can't get resolution 1024 x 600 - only option is 800 x 600.

inxi -G gives following:
Graphics: Card Intel Mobile 945GME Express Integrated Graphics Controller X.Org 1.10.1 Res: 800x600@60.3hz, 800x600@60.3hz
GLX Renderer Mesa DRI Intel 945GME GEM 20100330 DEVELOPMENT x86/MMX/SSE2 GLX Version 1.4 Mesa 7.10.2

and Xorg.0.log gives:

Hi -

1. If you haven't already done so, it couldn't hurt to download the latest/greatest driver from Intel:
http://edc.intel.com/Software/Downloads/IEGD/

2. Then look here for details on creating a valid configuration file for your card:

Well, just in case this can help anyone else, I finally got this working. You have to use the Intel CED tool that comes with the driver package to generate specific DTDs for the eee 901 screen, and then apply these in your xorg.conf, turning off all the automatic display detection. Here are the relevant bits of xorg.conf:
Code:
