Anyone have Alpha installed on a laptop and having issues with correct screen resolution? I'm looking for 1280x800. Best I can do is 1024x768.

Have you tried adding mode lines to xorg.conf ?
No longer a default, but still an option.

Nah. There was no xorg.conf until I played with system-config-display. That created the file but didn't help resolution at all. Now I've done the first major update and the whole system won't boot. I think it's a problem with plymouth but I don't really remember. I just booted back to 9 as I didn't feel like playing around with 10 to get it working right. Maybe I'll boot 10 to level 3, remove plymouth (can I do that?) and edit xorg. Then we'll see what happens.

Edit: Oh, thanks for the reply Steve. :)
