View Full Version : [PPC] Please help, Resolution

March 12th, 2010, 02:55 AM
I am having a problem with the resolution or something on my ubuntu 9.10 ppc.
Everything is pixilated and the colour is off. I am a biggener in this and i have no idea how to fix the problem, when I go to System>Preferences>Display it only shows 1024x768 4:3 and wont let me change it, the refresh rate is stuck at 75 and I don't even know if this means anything regarding the problem. I am on an iMac G3 and when i go to nano or gedit this is what I get.
Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
BusID "PCI:6:3:0"
Option "UseFBDev" "true"

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"

If any one knows how to help it would be much appreciated.

that sounds more like graphic drivers than resolution, especially the pixelation and the colour shift. Have you enabled any graphics drivers? Never played with an iMac so rather at a loss....
