Thanks. It worked!
after apply drivers & xorg.conf, my lucid running so slow
can anybody give me solution for this problem?
I have just installed ubuntu 10.04 and have never used it before. I have the problem of only being able to run at a maximum of 800x600 resolution. I have tried to follow the suggestions posted on this thread, but being a new user I am a bit confused! Could someone provide me with an idiots guide to getting a better resolution?
Thanks in advance!
Thanks a lot mhgsys, I will try this when I get home from work later.
With a SIS Mirage 3 card I upgraded from 0910 KarmicKoala to 1004 Lucid Lynx. I had only 800*600 resolution then found a solution to get a nice 1280*800 graphic screen.
My only remaining problem is that I cannot boot (Grub2) in recovery mode, the screen is flickering (or steady after blocking fb16). I have the same screen if I start a tty screen (CTRL+ALT+F1 to 6). I also tried to type "blindly" in this flickering screen in order to loggin then use startx command but it does not seem to work. I think that, even if I don't use very often a tty screen or the recovery mode start procedure it might be useful in order to recover from a major failure of the system.
Any idea to solve that problem ? Thanks to all for this very interesting thread.
Just an addition to my last post : I get the same result when I boot my laptop on the 1004 live CD or on a USB key I made from the iso image, both are working well with a 800*600 resolution but they don't allow me to open a tty terminal where I just get a flickering screen.
