Inspiron 5000 and VMware 2.02 Full-screen 1280x1024
- Hi Folks
I have an inspiron 5000 with the 15" SXGA+ display running Linux
6.2 which I successfully run at 1400x1050. I have recently installed
VMware with windows 98 as a guest OS. VMware Tools installs a special
SVGA driver for the guest OS (Windows98) that can do up to 1280x1024.
Unfortunately, I have never been able to get my Inspiron 5000 running
RH6.1 or 6.2 to run at 1280x1024. 1400x1050 and 1024x768 have been the
only two modes I have working. Consequently I cannot go to full-screen
mode in VMware at 1280x1024.
So until VMware support a 1400x1050 resolution with their SVGA driver,
I would like to try and get my Inspiron to run at 1280x1024. Has
anybody been successfull in this, if so I would be very grateful if
they could share with me their modeline values and any other configs
that were neccessary.
Thank you for your time.
PS: Has anybody else noticed the annoying feature of the egroups that
when you resize your netscape screen while in the middle of typing a
letter it looses all your hardwork of letter typing.
