UBUNTU 10.10 is out .. and the ASUS 1101HA still won't display 1366x768 on the LCD.
Time to wipe the UBUNTU partition, expand the WIN7 partitions and pass the machine to a windows user..
I picked up an ASUS EEE 1101HA with Windows 7 and installed UBUNTU 10.04 Netbook Remix (dual boot).
Ubuntu runs fine, but it doesn't recognize that the notebook LCD is 1366x768 and thus only offers 1024x768 and 800x600 as monitor resolution.
So .. how can I tell it about that higher resolution?
(Have root pwd & vi, una-bash-ed to use both.. )
there is currently (early May 2010) no video-driver for the Intel GMA500 "Poulsbo"
=> no solution exists for now.
UPDATE II xorg.conf, created with
sudo Xorg -configure removed, too long, no feedback
UPDATE III using cvt and xrandr as per adamgmetzler's suggestion (doesn't work)
note that 1366 is not a multiple of 8, so cvt silently 'upgraded' to 1368
lexu@eee1101:~$ cvt 1366 768 60 # 1368x768 59.88 Hz (CVT) hsync: 47.79 kHz; pclk: 85.25 MHz Modeline "1368x768_60.00" 85.25 1368 1440 1576 1784 768 771 781 798 -hsync +vsync lexu@eee1101:~$ xrandr --newmode "1368x768_60.00" 85.25 1368 1440 1576 1784 768 771 781 798 -hsync +vsync lexu@eee1101:~$ xrandr --addmode "default" "1368x768_60.00"
after doing this I can select the new resolution, but get an error message:
could not set configuration for CRTC 262
