Setting the 800x480 screen on the Eee PC 700 (2G Surf) Sub_title: A way to set the proper screen size when the xorgwizard fails in the Eee PC 700 (Eee PC 701 is OK)
In some of the newer Puppies (at least 5.4) "xorgwizard" script doesn't detect the right screen size in the "Eee PC 700 2G Surf" but the "Eee PC 701 4G Surf" is detected OK.
The problem seems to be that the 700 is not detected by the xorgwizard only the 701. Until this is rectified there is a workaround solution in editing the code in the xorgwizard script (in the directory "/usr/sbin") in an editor in the following manner.
Edit the"xorgwizard" in an editor (Geany perhaps) and change "701" in the line below to "700".
Another way is to overwrite the xorgwizard in the directory "/usr/sbin" with the enclosed xorgwizard which has been edited in the above way. After unzipping the file, it should be copied to the directory and the present xorgwisard overwritten preferably after making a backup of the old one e.g. "xorgwisard.bak".
After these changes it is simply a case of exiting to prompt from the shutdown menu and typing "xorgwizard" at the prompt. The 800x480 screen should be detected and selected. Some have mentioned that the 24 bit version should be selected, which I did. I haven't tested if the 16 bit works OK.
