I set up a virtual machine using qemu-system-arm (ARM emulation) running Debian squeeze. Now I have the problem that in the "Monitors" preferences, I can only select 640x480 as resolution.

Tried all different -vga options (cirrus, std, vmware) with no luck. Are there any tricks, maybe with xorg configuration (how to do that, recent Debian versions don't have the xorg.conf anymore)?

Anything higher than 800x600 would be okay for the beginning.

still no luck?… –  poige Apr 16 '12 at 9:23
@poige: No, I did not find a solution yet. Ubuntu can run the most recent version of qemu-system-arm, which solved another issue for me, but right now I don't have the time to try a recent version. –  AndiDog Apr 16 '12 at 13:20
