      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

How to get widescreen resolutions?

Recommended Posts

egrep 1600x900 /var/log/Xorg.0.log

shows nothing. The log lists only the standard resolutions like 1024x768, 800x600, 640x480.


I can't boot into gui with openchrome, even if I set 1024x768.


I can't even set 24 bit colour with vesa, even though in the past I could with my 14 inch monitor.

It says the openchrome driver


Requires :

rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1






rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1




what are rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1 and rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1 ?


what is devel(libdrm) ? I have libdrm2-2.0.2, which has libdrm.so.2.

I also have libdrm2-devel-2.0.2 & libdrm2-static-devel-2.0.2


why these glibc_2.x ?

talks about installing openchrome. It was saying that some chipsets won't work with 3d, so add these to xorg


Section "Module"

Disable "glx"

Disable "xtrap"

Disable "record"

Disable "GLcore"

Disable "dri"


but it still didn't work. I attach the openchrome manual, which is in troff format.
