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: 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. - -- Regards, Francisco Figueiredo Jr. Npgsql Lead Developer MonoBrasil Project Founder Member - ------------- "Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind." ~ Albert Einstein -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.2.6 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - iQEVAwUBQpY8mv7iFmsNzeXfAQJAVgf/SHTSPFtIATX9FRwX5sS0e2jCFuA4UD6q IOtB1r2ut4fxiMkATH7MamZi3idMoj2j2EOhDFqJ2SMtRENNmjr0dwWgms+kGr1h KdaO7jjLg1QEvEGyJLGVORI28leeeLRMX01dqvnShuBbUDvEmB7ibmCfba3r+b0u vxiIO9X94S9PI9aM5arHd7arUFLbKbT/kg7oTEtFWgAJ48LMlX6Y5AZq8bIbJAy/ +ocknpP4gAnxJPbuMAGGUNNfK9L/ttb5Fl7E8bgMr1bM/iZ3H+eDz4sRs9d5q2EU j8TvRWniu2DC4uFjJgOrA8ugx62xZsTXGN6MTi8cdnUf2jjcbrJ1aw== =iAK+ -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- ____________________________________________________ Yahoo!
