My Xorg.conf: reply to tim

Follow-up to sony vaio VGN FS–115B and my linux experience. from Ashutosh's blog

Since I posted my experience in installing Suse with 1280×800 resolution on FS VGN-FS115B, I have got lot of mails askign for my xorg.conf file. I thought it is better to put it on my blog:

using 915resolution : reply to mid

Using 915resolution tool is infact very easy. If you read the README file provided with it, you can use it without any confusion. Anyway, here I will write again, for the sake of completeness, how to use 915resolution.

NOTE: You must be root to install 915resolution.
$ su

#915resolution -l [ list all available Modes ]
Intel 915GM VBIOS Hack : version 0.1

Chipset: 915GM

Mode 30 : 640×480, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 32 : 800×600, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 34 : 1024×768, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 38 : 1280×1000, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 3a : 1600×1200, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 3c : 1920×1440, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 41 : 640×480, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 43 : 800×600, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 45 : 1024×768, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 49 : 1280×800, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 4b : 1600×1200, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 4d : 1920×1440, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 50 : 640×480, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 52 : 800×600, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 54 : 1024×768, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 58 : 1280×800, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 5a : 1600×1200, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 5c : 1920×1440, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 60 : 1280×770, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 61 : 1280×770, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 62 : 1280×770, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 63 : 512×771, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 64 : 512×771, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 65 : 512×771, 32 bits/pixel

NOTE: please notice that 1280×800 is not listed anywhere in the list of avialbale modes. Schade!!! So now you have to change VBIOS settings to include our darling 1280×800 resolution in it. So we have to rewrite some available mode to 1280×800. I know you will feel like re-writing all of them to 1280×800, I can understand the temptation. Even if you do, nothing will happen, but we isght want to use soem other resolution, at some other point in time and space :)). So take one of them, which you hate, I hate mode 38, so What I did was:

#915resolution 38 1280 800

and that is all. Now check whether it really wrote VBIOS or not, do the following:

#.915resolution -l
Intel 915GM VBIOS Hack : version 0.1

Chipset: 915GM

Mode 30 : 640×480, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 32 : 800×600, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 34 : 1024×768, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 38 : 1280×800, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 3a : 1600×1200, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 3c : 1920×1440, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 41 : 640×480, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 43 : 800×600, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 45 : 1024×768, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 49 : 1280×800, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 4b : 1600×1200, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 4d : 1920×1440, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 50 : 640×480, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 52 : 800×600, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 54 : 1024×768, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 58 : 1280×800, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 5a : 1600×1200, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 5c : 1920×1440, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 60 : 1280×770, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 61 : 1280×770, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 62 : 1280×770, 32 bits/pixel
Mode 63 : 512×771, 8 bits/pixel
Mode 64 : 512×771, 16 bits/pixel
Mode 65 : 512×771, 32 bits/pixel

and lo, old mode 38 is gone to make way for our own 1280×800 resolution. To check it and see 1280×800 for the first time on your machine, restart the X server. I guess init 3 and init 5 will do. —OR— do Ctrl-Alt-Backspace. I know at this time you will say wow!!!

…..Fireworks….....
…..Fireworks…......

So after having enough firework, you will restart your machine to sadle notice that your 1280×800 is gone and once again 1024×768 will greet you back. This happens because 915resolution thing does not permanantly replace this VBIOS mode settings. To do this insert follwoing lines in your /etc/rc.d/boot.local file:

/usr/sbin/915resolution 38 1280 800

and you will never have to bother about resolution buisness again.
