Big Trouble in Little Laptop

| No Comments

Yesterday I booted the laptop (an Amilo L7300) into Ubuntu and when checking for updates, was promptly given the option to upgrade to version 7.04, the latest release. I had already read on A Geek In Korea that the upgrade from Edge Eft (6.10) to Feisty Fawn (7.04) was quite painless, so I gave it a shot. The update went without a hitch indeed : after downloading about 62MB of files, it installed, removed obsolete packages, cleaned up the system and rebooted.

One little snag though... I can't set my desktop resolution any higher that 800x600, where I'm very certain it was at 1024x768 earlier. If anyone has the solution to get Feisty Fawn running at that resolution on an S3 IGP Unichrome Pro videocard, I'd like to hear it.

I have a similar problem when running Second Life on the laptop by the way : after the latest update to, text is pretty much unreadable and very hazy. Yet the card works without a hitch at 1024x768 in windows XP Home. Solutions? Tell me!

Note : there are no newer drivers for the videocard as far as I'm aware.
