Default Pandaboard display resolution

Hello, I need some help from Ubuntu ARM developers.

I've just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on Pandaboard. Everything
works, apart from setting display resolution. So I guess I have two

The board has two display ports, HDMI and DVI. Only HDMI port works,
I've tried adding 'omapdss.def_disp=dvi' to boot args and then:

mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt
mkimage -A arm -T script -C none -n "boot.scr"
-d /boot/boot.script /mnt/boot.scr

However the screen is always blank when connected to DVI port. Why is

On HDMI port I only get 1280x1024 display resolution. My monitor's
native resolution is 1600x1200@60. I tried adding the following to
boot args:


mount /dev/mmcblk0p1 /mnt
mkimage -A arm -T script -C none -n "boot.scr"
-d /boot/boot.script /mnt/boot.scr

However display resolution still remains at 1280x1024. Any ideas?
