framebuffer at 1680x1050?

hey guys - did anyone of you get the framebuffer to 1680x1050? vesafb works well with 1280x1024, but not more. maybe with vesafb-tng from dev.gentoo.org/~spock? the patch fails here with 2.6.16 and 2.6.17 :(

with sabayon 3.2.6 (linux 2.6.19) i have a screen res of 1680x1050 with no problem (just install) on my lenovo Z61m

do you realy have the consoles (not X) at 1680x1050? could you find out which modules are used for that? vesafb? vesafb-tng? --Zhenech 01:25, 12 February 2007 (CET)

Installing Debian Sid via Sidux

I wanted to post a note here about my experience of installing Debian Sid via Sidux, which has been very good. Unfortunately I don't see how to add it to the main page, but if anyone is interested they can find more details at http://www.acampbell.org.uk/linux/linux-thinkpadz61m.html.
