I'm using Fedora 10 x86_64 with an ATI Radeon Mobility x1400 video card. Before installing fglrx & compiz, the text console (while booting up) was shown at 1280x800 resolution (laptop widescreen). After installing fglrx & compiz the console would only show up as 640x480 resolution. My resolution in X starts as 1280x800 without any problem.
I realize that you can use vga=xxx as a kernel argument but this only works with NON-widescreen resolutions. I require that it be set to a widescreen resolution like it was before the fglrx & compiz installation.
Is it possible? How can I do it? I used this tutorial to get fglrx & compiz working: Howto for fglrx (Ati driver) and Compiz-fusion
