ibook g3 resolution
i installed a minimal ubuntu os onto my ibook g3 and have since installed gnome and a few other things necessary. my problem is screen resolution. im stuck with 800x600 and have tried adding resolutions using xorg.conf file and with xrandr but i cant seem to get it to work.
after adding a resolution in xrandr it says the available resolutions and 1024x768 is one of them but it also says that the max resolution is 800x600.
Re: ibook g3 resolution
Have you installed the binary driver from Nvidia? I think the open driver has some issues with widescreen or atleast it did that back when i used it the last time.
Edit: Nevermind. The G3 doesn't use Nvidia graphics. It uses the ATI Rage Mobility which should be well supported.
