Burg Bootloader Display Issues

Post by Zukaro Travon » Wed Jan 18, 2012 8:26 pm

I have an Acer Aspire One ZG5 running Linux Mint 12 and I put the burg bootloader on.
The resolution is wrong as my netbook has a 1024x600 display and the highest burg will go to is 800x600, so things appear stretched and ugly. I was wondering if there's a way to fix this (pressing F3 brings up the available resolutions to choose from, and 1024x600 isn't listed; is there a way to add it and have it work properly)?

I'm not sure if there's much you can do about it, I don't know how GRUB or BURG determine the available resolutions for a given display, but I do believe that, currently at least, widescreen resolutions just aren't available. I'm in a similar situation (my laptop's resolution is 1366x768, but only 1024x768 is available so everything's a little stretched, doesn't look too bad though...). Hopefully someone might be better able to explain the situation and maybe some day the GRUB devs can work in widescreen native resolution support (which should then filter down to BURG as BURG is based on GRUB).

I may look into it some myself if I have more time, I would be interested to know what's up with that...
