60% and in the center. There is a picture on this group that is not
mine, but the resolution is the exact same problem I am having when I
try to run it. I have tried all the cheat codes to fix it but nothing
works. Any suggestions??
The 1100s with the new A20 BIOSes don't work correctly with the current
XFree86. You need to run a patch before XFree86 starts to get full
resolution. However, I don't know how you might compile and run this
patch in Knoppix, as you can't modify the CD image very easily. Have a
read of the display setup section at:
You might need to do a hard drive install to allow running of the
845patch before XFree starts.
