Modified source code now attached to the 5th post in this thread.
I discovered an extraneous comma at the end of line 63 of 915resolution.c. I removed it before packaging the source code, then I also recompiled the 915resolution dotpet and re-attached it to the first post.
If you downloaded the dotpet before December 12, please download again.

aragon, does this now work with your Dell Latitude E6400?

Thanks for this. I can resurrect my old-ish puppy 4.1.2 and have it scream at my new machines with the correct resolution Very Happy

Well I need to know the device ID of the GMA3150 graphics controller ... Google tells me it's 8086:a011 ?

EDIT: Attachment removed.
Chipset ID 8086:a011 doesn't work.

I don't have one unfortunately. Prehistoric has a friend that has one and PaceNotes has one. I'll throw into Puppeee and see if anyone will test it.

Sure, I just want to wait until we know it works.
If you're that interested Amigo, I can explain the relevant sections of the source file, and you can become the maintainer of 915resolution in Puppy Wink

It should be noted that developments in Puppy can be quite prominent in the Linux world. I have had several developers from other distributions contact me regarding 915resolution, and also regarding wifi drivers.

You don't need to explain -I have used your patches to 915 before -I think I found some others from arch linux or somewhere and used them all together. I don't find the last sources I was working with at the moment.

PaceNotes PMed me the following info:

Quote:

# 915resolution -l
Intel 800/900 Series VBIOS Hack : version 0.5.3

Intel chipset detected. However, 915resolution was unable to determine the chipset type.
Chipset Id: a0108086
Please report this problem to stomljen@yahoo.com



Maybe there are multiple IDs?

Mmm, that's interesting; 8086:a010 is the "N10 Family (Pineview) DMI Bridge"
http://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/8086/a010
The graphics controller components of the chipset are 8086:a011 and 8086:a012.

EDIT:
Now tested successfully with GMA3150 graphics chipset.

OK, here's the revised version, with chipset ID changed to 8086:a010.


That one works for me. Thank you Very Happy
