<div dir="ltr">Hello,<br><br>I&#39;m not sure how many people still belogn to this list or
if anyone can help me, but I&#39;m gonna try anyway.&nbsp; I&#39;ve recently
installed Gentoo on to my xbox (a very frustrating process, but I&#39;ve
gotten mostly there).There is one last obstacle standing in my way: X
is not working properly.&nbsp; Instead of going into the 640x480 resolution
that I desire for my tv, it will only give me 1152x768, which obviously
is unusable on my tv.<br>
<br>This is the same problem encountered here: <a href="" target="_blank"></a><br><br>In order to get the x to even work, I had to use the patch on the bottom fo that page.<br>

<br>I fixed this once, for one night by following the Gentoox installer
script (not verbatim, but the concepts) for xorg.&nbsp; (I&#39;d link it but Im
at work and they blocked that site, but can be found by going to <a href="" target="_blank"></a> I believe).<br>
<br>To preface a few things: I want to use gentoo.&nbsp; I don&#39;t want to use
gentoox or xfedora or xebian.&nbsp; This is a hobby of mine and would like
to see it to the end.&nbsp; I know it can work, and I intend to get it there.<br>
<br>After I got it working the first time, I installed some unrelated
thigns (off the top of my head): bazaar, linux-headers, alsa, lirc,
mednafen, maybe one or two more but all unrelated I believe.<br><br>Any advice would be greatly appreciated and if you need more info just ask and I&#39;ll provide it.<br>
<br>Thanks!<br>Brian<br clear="all"><br>-- <br>Brian O&#39;Connor<br>
