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 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)


The Option for disable the virtualisation-disable-bit is missing. (Bios: config/CPU/Virtualisation) No Virtualisation with this Bios (1.13) possible.

UPDATE: Version 2.18 from 17.5.2007 Embedded 1.08. Downlaod is from 6.6.2007

Bios now allow enbabling Virtualisation on Z61m.

  • spca5xx Driver is not working, Please give more information, when someone get it working. (gspcav didn't worked,too)

Update (Aug. 27, 2008) -- None of the above will work, but there is finally a working driver for the Microdia USB2.0 ( 0c45:627b ) camera. Details are here: As of today, the default driver setting has extreme contrast/whiteness issues, however development appears to be very active so Z61m users running Linux should be able to use the onboard camera soon (as well as other USB users).


Is supported by the tifmxx Project. (tifm_7xx1)

Included in Kernel >2.6.19

Power Managment

Since 2.6.19-rc4 Suspend to disk and Suspend to RAM is working without Problems. (gentoo-sources, ati video driver).
