I used to get a somewhat similar problem on my laptop which has a resolution of 1440x900. It was initially setup through xorgconfig as 1024x768 with the nv driver, but the fonts looked extremely blurred. When I manually set the resolution to 1440x900, X gave an error that there were no available modes to match this resolution. Finally, I had to switch to the nvidia binary driver (after removing freebsd amd64 and installing i386) , which accepted this resolution. Perhaps, there is a more specific driver for that chipset than the i810 driver? -- Gautham Ganapathy http://lisphacker.org _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
