You shouldn't need 915resolution with newer versions of the xf86-video-intel driver.

Comment 4 Simeon Maryasin 2009-02-02 16:52:03 UTC
yes, but what about console framebuffer?

> yes, but what about console framebuffer?

Same need for me: I want my framebuffer console going 1024x600 and not 640x480 ;)

I can confirm that the patch works correctly on Intel 945GME.  915resolution, while not needed for Xorg, is still necessary in order to use the native LCD resolution in the framebuffer.  Could we please get that patch into the tree?

with KMS, this should no longer be necessary, right?
anyway - added to the tree.
