In /etc/mkinitcpio.conf, there's FBRES value. Shouldn't it albo be set to FBRES="1280x800"? You should have mention that there's no need to load 915resolution daemon. --Husio 15:56, 25 June 2008 (EDT)
New .conf file location
As of v86d 0.1.10-3, /etc/modprobe.d/uvesafb.conf has been moved to /usr/lib/modprobe.d/uvesafb.conf. Edited "Define a Resolution" and "Listing Resolutions" sections to reflect this change. --Sonoran 12 April 2012
- Thanks :-) For fixes like this, it's enough to include a summary of your edit in the 'Summary' text field (just above the 'Save page', 'Show preview' and 'Show changes' buttons). -- Karol 18:07, 12 April 2012 (EDT)
Disabling KMS really needed nowadays ?
Adding i915.modeset=0 gave me "no device found" errors while trying to set up Xorg.
At last after losing quite some time I finally set i915.modeset=1, and tada : a good looking framebuffer and a working X server, no pitch-black screen.
Maybe the use of this has obsolete. I have intel module version 2.18, xorg 1.12.1 and a 3.3.3-1-ARCH kernel with an Intel GMA 3000 chipset.
