Re: xorg video modes question
You should check the log file (/var/log/Xorg.0.log). The actual
The log file lists every video mode known to man but doesn't say what it
is actually using. The output of xrandr does show the current mode is
1280x1024. Text and application windows look the correct size and no
longer appear magnified as they did at the original 800x600. I could
post the log file here but it is rather large (24K).
I can grab an application window and it will move entirely out of view
to the right and bottom up to the cursor.
The logfile on a (Wheezy) system I've just fired up doesn't even list
resolutions. However I find
$ cat /proc/openprom/SUNW,ffb@1e,0/width
$ cat /proc/openprom/SUNW,ffb@1e,0/height
which look promising, I suggest comparing these (if you have them or
something close) with the parameters reported by your monitor.
There used to be a parameter to control the viewport for tis sort of
problem. However I repeat what I said earlier: the best way to handle
this might be by telling OBP what to use as early as possible.
