could you create another Xorg.conf and pastebin in with no changes please

Doubt If I'm going to be of much help.
I know nothing of configuring/troubleshooting the Poulsbo drivers, but maybe someone else will spot something if we lure them with lots of data

ETA: Nevermind pasting either

You might want to try a .iso of Peppermint One/Ice as they are based on Lucid, which supposedly has better support for the psb driver.
Maybe the graphics card will be better supported.
If it is and works better, might be able to get some info from there that's helpful. Longshot, but never know

Thanks for the post link: some good info. I'm downloading Peppermint-One as we "speak" and will post back in a while.

Thanks

Well, I downloaded both One and Ice and neither one allows for anything other than 800x600 / 800x576. I have installed Ice and think I'll stick with that for now and continue my quest for better resolutions. Still open to suggestions.

Thanks
mac

Eureka! I did this
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gma500/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install poulsbo-driver-3d

as per the instructions here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport ... rdsPoulsbo under the heading PSB drivers (outdated).

I now have 1024x600. Much better! Thanks to everyone who responded or thought about it. Special thanks to Eric2 for providing the link.

Thanks
mac
