I'd try with the 815resolution package, or alternatively with the "intel"
driver in lenny & sid.

Default Wrong resolution in KDE with ASUS F3F laptop

Hi. I just installed etch on my ASUSF3F laptop with Intel chipset.
In kde I only get to choose 1024x768 resolution. The screen is a widescreen
display. Normal resolution is 1280x800.

I have attached my xorg.conf and log.

Any ideas, from you people? Usually it is pretty easy to get working..

Solution:

# aptitude install 915resolution

Xorg correctly discovers that the best monitor mode is 1280x800, however this
mode is not available in the bios for selection by default. The above package
adds modification during the startup sequence that adds the missing
resolution to the bios, so it can be selected by xorg.

The lines in the log that hints to what the problem is are the following:

(II) I810(0): Not using mode "1280x800" (no mode of this name)
(--) I810(0): Virtual size is 1024x768 (pitch 1024)
(**) I810(0): Built-in mode "1024x768"
(--) I810(0): Display dimensions: (330, 210) mm
(--) I810(0): DPI set to (78, 92)
