I'm looking for a videoBIOS which supports 1440x900 from VBE. I'm using linux and dislike framebuffers in resolutions under the native of the lcdpanel... and that is in fact 1440x900 but vbe is only supporting usal modes up to 1280x... Not good..... For more information:
"The resolutions are indeed hardcoded in the VBIOS,
and it's basically up to the vendor to select which ones will be
available, other than some basic ones defined in the VBE standards.
Some choose to include a lot of resolutions, some choose not to do
that, but AFAIK, there is no technical reason not to include more
resolutions in the BIOS (other than space limitations, but this should
usually be a non-issue)."
Hope s.o. can help ...
