Hi Mark.

This problems is caused because your bios doesn't list the 1024x768
video mode and i810 driver needs it listed to enable the mode.

To workaround, you will need the 855resolution:
http://perso.wanadoo.fr/apoirier/

This utility enable you to *write* an specific resolution mode to your
in-memory copy of bios so driver is able to find it. I'm using it here
right now to be able to use my native 1400x1050 resolution.

It is very simple to build. Also, you will need to make it run everytime
you boot as the info is lost when shutdown. I added it to my
/etc/conf.d/local.start:

/usr/sbin/855resolution 3c 1400 1050 > /dev/null


The 3c is an unused slot where I can store my configuration. Have a look
at readme inside the tar.gz file to know how it works.



I hope it helps.
