Please help ;(
I am trying to run an application using VMware with Windows.
The application requires switches display to 640x480 mode using
MS DirectX. However my display switches to 1280x1024 with looks
really bad. I checked it many times - you set explicitly 640x480
mode in windows desktop properties, and display turns into
1280x1024. X from virtual FreeBSD act in the same way. Moreover,
virtual system boot screen (when setup checks the stuff) switches
my host to 1280x1024 too ;(
How do I set up things so that when subsystem sets 640x480 -
I would get it the right things on my physycal display?
PS. It seems that this is my local X issue - the highest built-in vesa
mode on my system is 1280x1024. The man xorg.conf says:
Modes "mode-name" ...
This optional entry specifies the list of video modes to use.
When this entry is omitted, (snip) then the selection will be
taken from the built-in VESA standard modes.
But why the highest mode gets chosen when 640x480 is requested?
