I have 1440x900 too. It seems to work with vga=0x365 but I'm very confused.
At this link
there is a post from a guy with 1440x900 and he says he uses vga=865 (or vga=0x865?).
He refers us to this page in Wikipedia
. The 865 comes from the table "Linux video mode numbers" and corresponds to 1440x900 with 15-bit color. I have 24-bit color so that same table would tell me to use 867.
Instead I try vga=ask. This gives me many possibilities, only two are 1440x900:
1) 1440x900x8 364
2) 1440x900x32 365
I guess the third number is color depth, there's no option for 1440x900x24 so I try the two above, only the second (vga=0x365) works so I go with that. Phew.
Fedora is what ill be switching to from Ubuntu
Funny I'm thinking of switching to
Ubuntu, just so that I can go through this reconfiguration stuff less often. What prompts you to move in the other direction?
