X configuration with xserver-xorg-video-intel



I have 2 PCs with a 915 chipset.  One wants to use 1280x768 resolution and
the other wants 1152x864 resolution.  I haven't setup a new system in a
while with X and I'm running into some problems/differences.

I like to have my systems setup so that I can cycle through different
resolutions.  Unfortunately, I'm unable to get this to work.  The debconf
configuration for xserver-xorg doesn't ask about the video anymore.

Around the time that the xserver-xorg-video-i810 package was changed to
install xserver-xorg-video-intel (dummy package), I was setting up a system
and was also having problems with it and resolutions and went with the older
package that contained the i810 driver.

Apparently, the xserver-xorg-video-intel has not had any of these problems
fixed.

Here's my current configuration:
