I have been trying to set up XFree86 v4 on a beige G3 with 6 MB of video RAM to accept
1024x768 for resolution with a Samsung TFT 570 for some days now. But I utterly fail. The
max I achieve to get out of it are 800x600. Am I missing some restrictions. Also, I have a
running screen if a switch to console modus. It's plainly unbearable.
Have you already tried setting 'CREATE_FB_CONF' to 'init' (instead of
'yes' or 'no') in yast? This completely solved my resolution problems
the past... but it was 6.4, not 7.1, so I can't guarantee.
BTW, it's a G3 mini tower with 224 MB RAM under SuSE 7.1 PPC.
