[SOLVED] Screen Resolution 1024x600
« on: July 27, 2010, 01:33:09 PM »
Hi!

Tinycore is great! I really like the system! BUT... i am now working only with my netbook and can not get the default 1024x600 resolution... I heard about 915resolution.tce but i can only connect in internet via wireless (that does not work after tinycore boots up...) So, here is the question(s):

- How to setup the correct resolution?

- It will play videos via mplayer or even flash videos from youtube direct in the browser?

- The Xvesa with tinycore has composite support?

- If i can not find some applications under tinycore package management, is there any specific package from another distro that i have/can use?

Ok, that's a lot of questions... I hope someone can help me.

Thanks!

Couldn't you place the needed extensions on to a pendrive?

I have 915resolution.tcz as one of my "onboot" extensions, and I think that it is supposed to work automatically in most cases.  At first, the 1024x600 resolution on my Dell Mini 9 didn't work, but it finally kicked-in for some reason.

By the way, what is the brand-model of your netbook?

I use Mplayer-nodeps.tcz, as it has no dependencies and plays movies within the frame buffer, but there are gtk versions in the TC repository.  You can install mainstream browsers with the proper plug-ins/extensions that will allow you to play video within the browser.

Don't know about composite support in Xvesa.

Don't know about using packages from other distros.

No composite in Xvesa.

Also smplayer.tcz (qt based) works fine as frontend for Mplayer-nodeps.tcz

The first line of my "/home/tc/.xsession" reads:
Code: [Select]

What is output of:

sudo 915resolution -l |grep 1024x600
?

The output is as below:

Is it easy for you to try Xorg?
Which version of TC do you refer to?

EDIT: Found 915resolution patched including your chipset here:

Thanks by the answers! I will try "playing" more with tinycore in a vrtualmachine before installing.

Thanks for your help. I could use the patched version available from puppy and get the 1024x600 resolution.
However Xorg-7.5.tcz does not work and gives the following error in Xorg.0.log. I would appreciate your suggestion.

Do you have graphics-2.6.33.3-tinycore.tcz loaded? Intel needs it for 2d too.

Xorg could do native resolution without 915resolution, but in case 915resolution works for your chipset, Xvesa should work with native resolution.  ;)

That's why i prefixed the part about patched 915resolution with "EDIT", I found that after already having posted suggestion to try Xorg (meant without 915resolution working).
