On the same portable there is also a SUSE Linux 10.1 and WinXP, which works
in 1280x768 (so the hardware can use this resolution)
In /var/log/Xorg.0.log is see many references to 1280x768 for the 'local
flat panel' , PanelID returned panel resolution: 1280x768, also
Printing DDC gathered Modelines:
(||) 1810(0): Modeline "1280x768"x0.0 (followed by varying numbers and
a KhZ to end)
Mode: 30 (640x480)
diffenrent Mode sections but 1024x768 at the highest
(||) |810(0): Not using mode "1280x768i (no mode of that name)
(--) |810(0): Virtual size is 1024x768 (pitch 1024)
(**) |810(0): Built-in mode "1024x768"
(**) |810(0): Display dimensions: (260,160) mm
(**) |810(0): DPI set to (100,121)
