I did some (minor) progress :
- vidcontrol -i mode give only 640x480x4 maximum resolution before I
realize that loading vesa.ko could help.
- With "kload vesa.ko" I get 1024x768x8 which could be ok for my laptop.
- I am very surprized to have to add :
HorizSync 30.0 - 82.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 75.0
to the Monitor section for a laptop with a LCD screen. Is to due to
the vesa driver ?
- X start correctly but is unable to go higher than 640x480 which seem
-- The panel resolution is recognized :(II) VESA(0): PanelID returned
panel resolution 1024x768
-- The mode exist Mode: 105 (1024x768)
-- but (II) VESA(0): Not using mode "1024x768" (no mode of this name)
My current xorg.conf & the Xorg.0.log coud be read here
Will I need to resurrect the modeline from the old video monitor ?
