howto - Xorg7 on vmware

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

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"

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:

Re: howto - Xorg7 on vmware

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.
