Been following sabayon for a while, and getting others hooked on it. I have a rather unique problem..
First let me state that my setup works fine... I have an Asus s5n laptop (1.8GHz w/ 768RAM).
The only problem I am experiencing is with my screen resolution. My laptop is not widescreen, just a regular 12" LCD display, but Xorg autoconfig seems to only let me choose the widescreen resolutions.
The tool has many resolutions, most of which are not supported by my lcd - and it doesn't have 1024x768.
Usually in the past to fix something like this i would edit the xorg.conf file as superuser, which I have just tried.
The setup is a bit different though, and the screen resolutions displayed in the Gnome Control Center are not the same as what's in xorg.conf. I tried to uncomment out the mode line to enable 1024x768 (my max lcd resolution), then restarted X ( i have done this many times in the past with success).
Then, when i went to start up the screen resolution picker from control center it crashed.. and that is all it does now is just crash when i attempt to start it.
But the weird thing is that everything continues to run fine... I can do the 3d desktop effects , but when i zoom out on the cube you can see the extra 20 pixels or so on the right when i do not use, and do not fit on my screen..
So, my question is - how can i change my screen resolution with the new autoconfig Xorg, and how can i get the screen resolution tool to stop crashing?
Thanks in advance,
