Everything was working fine yet my USB stick died, so I redone everything on a new stick.
Downloaded the 901_net_gfx.lzm file placed it into the /BT3/Optional Folder
Inserted the edit to the syslinux.cfg file
MENU LABEL BT3 EEE Mode
APPEND vga=785 initrd=/boot/initrd.gz ramdisk_size=6666 root=/dev/ram0 rw load=901_net_gfx
I see the new EEE entry on boot, select it and it boots without error. Login and startx then the screen briefly goes corrupted white, the then GUI loads but it seems to be in the wrong res, the bottom bar is cut off and so are some of the icons on the left.
Any ideas what is going on? I've done everything I did before with my old stick and cannot understand why the res is now incorrect.
