Well, that brings me to the real question, then.
Kubuntu 8.04 doesn't seem to use xorg.conf at all but somehow it sets the resolution perfectly. LMCE 7.10 RC2 can't set the resolution higher than 1024x768. Even when I manually stick in the proper modeline values from "gtf" it defaults back to a lower resolution.
Is LMCE using a different (older) driver for the intel chipset? Do I need to just pull the sources off of intellinuxgraphics.org and manually compile the driver?
Or, is there a repository I can point LMCE to that already has the driver packaged up?
I only mentioned 8.04 because it shows that there's an "off-the-shelf" Linux driver and configuration out there. I'm just having trouble translating that to LMCE 7.10.
I feel like an idiot having to ask this but I'm not sure where else to look (searching the kubuntu/ubuntu forums for xorg.conf related info only answers how to enable multiple-displays). No one on those forums is trying to roll-back the configuration because it works fine in 8.04.
The problem is that the AVwizard is not detecting the 965 chipsets video chip correctly I would guess... we've seen this already with other chipsets. I guess that the 965 chipset in your Aopen is using a gma3000 series GPU and we will be testing some of these in the next few weeks. Once we have those tests completed we should be able to release an update to fix this issue.
