    I have read several posts from people who had been using various linux distros with fullscreen resolution who lost it after update to build 3094. Is there anyone running a standard Linux distro with modified Xorg who can still control their resolution properly? I'm not interested in using 3094 if I can't get fullscreen to work right.

    Same problem with Solaris 10 although I've not yet had time to look into it.

    UGHHH! All my Linux distro's have been reset to 1024x768 and so far I've only gotten SUSE 10.2 to go 1280x800 but not 1440x900

    It looks like this is a pretty well-confirmed global bug. Developers, if this is an unavoidable consequence of the new video drivers, PLEASE add a video configuration option to use the old video system! For the moment, I'm back to build 3036. I understand that windows support is a lot more important than GNU/Linux for sales and marketing, but since this was working fine with older code, I hope it will be easy to restore this functionality.

    Same problem with trying to get 1680x1050

    My display now defaults to 1600x1200. I've tried a number of tricks in my xorg.conf file but I can't seem to convince X to go back to 1680x1050.

    Reverted to 3036 too.

    I had previously posted being unable to get 1440x900 with 3094 and Linux and Solaris. After trying every trick I could think of with 3094, I also reverted to 3036. It is clearly an issue with the video driver in 3094, which I hope gets fixed in the next beta release.

    no solution.

    just wanted to add my voice to those concerned

    bought parallels for linux support
    with the tools I need to use I need the screen bandwidth.

    1440x900 please !!

    use "vbetest" program.

    In "lrmi" package, there is a small program, "vbetest".

    Type a mode number, or 'q' to quit -

    The first number + 512 will be your "vga=" parameter.
    In my iMac, 1400x900 was 823. (= 311 + 512)

    Different devices has different codes

    On my MBP i have different codes for the same resolution. So you should check it using lrmi/vbetest on your machine, before using it.

    BTW: The 8x8x8 resolutions do not work on my SuSE 9.0
