any idea about widescreen framebuffer now?


My noteboot is DELL6400(E1505)

shiped with ATi X1300 and a 1280x800 LCD.

Worked well with ATi driver under Xorg, but how to let framebuffer supports 1280x800 also ?

Thank you!

Rebuild the kernel with this support added.......
Look in the /usr/src/linux-<version-number/Documentation/fb directory for the infomation, review the framebuffer.txt and aty128fb.txt files. Did this myself but for a SIS video chipset (same resolution 1280x800) and it looks good, example grub.conf/menu.lst kernel line entry;

kernel /vmlinuz- ro root=LABEL=/ quiet video=sisfb:mode:1280x800x16
