PostPosted: Mon 15 Sep 2008, 01:28    Post subject:  VIA_CX700 on Easynote XS defaults to 640x480, not 800x640  

Computer: Easynote XS
Puppy version: puppy-4.1beta-408-k2.6.25.16-seamonkey
Install type: Frugal
Vdeo chip: VIA_CX700
Display: 7" with 15:9 ratio

This subnotebook is capable of 800x480 native, 800x600, 1000x600, and 1024x768 on Windows XP

Puppy defaults to 640x480, regardless of what resolution I choose.

Cheking via.conf from via-unichrome.83.40692 i see it supports the following modelines. I omitted the ones i'm not interested on, or the ones that are not 15:9 aspect ratio
Code:
Section "Monitor"
   Identifier "Monitor"
   #Refresh Rate 60Hz
   ModeLine "800x480" 29.58 800 816 896 992 480 481 484 497
   ModeLine "960x600" 45.98 960 1000 1096 1232  600 601 604 622 -HSync +Vsync
   ModeLine "1000x600" 48.07 1000 1040 1144 1288 600 601 604 622 -HSync +Vsync
   ModeLine "1200x720" 70.18 1200 1256 1384 1568 720 721 724 746 -HSync +Vsync
   ModeLine "1280x768" 80.1 1280 1344 1480 1680 768 769 772 795

PLS help me get this tiny screen on a higher resolution, as puppy was not designed for such a short resolution, so wizards etc.. falll out of the screen.

I need to get to 1000x600,or bigger(1600x960 would be a dream come true dont know if the harware can do it).

Tell me what I have to grep, so that i can help you help me, to helps us Smile

some xorg.conf's have these 2 different values for their refresh rates

this is from xorg.conf-openchrome
Code:
Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   Option   "DPMS"   "true"
   HorizSync    28.0 - 78.0
   VertRefresh  60.0
EndSection

nanobook-xorg.conf.txt
Code:

   Identifier   "Monitor0"
   Option   "DPMS"   "true"
   HorizSync    28.0 - 78.0
   VertRefresh  60.0
EndSection
