OK - first up, this is just some information for anyone like me who has been playing around with Xorg7 on a vmware virtual machine. While xorg installed smoothly after a fresh Arch install, I couldn't get a resolution higher than about 640x480 !! Seems you need to add the following lines to the xorg.conf
Section "Monitor" .... HorizSync 1 - 10000 VertRefresh 1 - 10000 .... EndSection
Make sure the screen section is configured for high res modes...
Section "Screen" .... DefaultColorDepth 24 .... Subsection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Depth 24 Modes "1280x800" "1024x768" "800x600" EndSubSection EndSection
And there you go - problem solved. Surprisingly little information about this on Google so I thought i'd put it here to help others. Or maybe it's just that everyone knows this stuff except me :oops:
I had the same problem with resolution.
I reported it to Flyspray and with the help of Jan de Groot (JGC) the problem was resolved.
it works fine after adding some HorizSync/VertRefresh lines.
