    I will refer you to the first post in this thread:

    Updating the intel driver and enabling hardware acceleration has never been the purpose of this howto/tutorial. The intent has always been to enable unsupported resolutions in VESA (software rendering) until it is possible for backtrack to meet all of the package dependencies necessary for the intel driver update.

    If you really need hardware acceleration now, you could always try to tackle the dependency hell yourself, but I'd suggest moving to a different Linux distro instead. It would be easier

    Good Day to all! I like to ask any body about problem witch I have in time of starting BT 4r2 (by the command "startX"). I have Notebook "Dell Inspiron N5010" with ATI Radeon HD 5650 Video Adapter and Intel Core i5 CPU. When i load the BT4 from memory stick and try to start it with "startx" command it give me the error message(see screen shot).As far as i understand there is a problem with resolution support for ATI Radeon Graphic card(?) Could any body give me advise how to rectify this problem or steps for solution.In this thread i read info about complication the situation with Intel Integrated Graphic only(915resolution: Intel Video BIOS Hack) but in case I have ATI Radeon HD 5650 Graphic, what I need to do?Thank to all in advance)

    The file "915resolution-0.5.3-patched20100828.tar.gz" is no longer at the link provided. A Google search yielded no results for it either.

    I tried using the the "915resolution-0.5.3-patched20101123.tar.gz" file from that thread and continued on with the tutorial.

    Completed Part 1 with the other file and went on to Part 2. Started at the "Put framebuffer initialization in initramfs" section and I'm stuck at this part:
    Code:
    apt-get source v86d libklibc
    I type that in and get the following:
    Code:
    # apt-get source v86d libklibc
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list
    My current sources.list:
    Code:
    deb http://archive.offensive-security.com pwnsauce main microverse macroverse restricted universe multiverse
    deb http://archive.offensive-security.com/repotest/ ./   # BackTrack Devel Repository
    Not sure what to add to it. I'm stuck here

    Thanks!

    Try typing in "fixvesa". I recall having the same issue and that fixed it for me.

    As I'm sure you're aware there are step-by-step procedures written on the first page of this thread in post #7:
    http://www.backtrack-linux.org/forum...tml#post181219

    The only command missing from that post is the command you're getting wrong.. it's:
    Code:
    apt-get install v86d
    Please feel free to post the new link to the updated 915resolution patch so other folks don't have to search for it.

    Good evening,

    I was wondering if i could get a little help in here.

    I am stuck at the 2edit the menu.lst" part. I can already put the resolution working manually, but i can't seem to get a good entry on the grub menu.lst, everytime i add some options to the copy of the original kernel entry, i get a screen stuck at initramfs> and nothing else. Could i get a help?

    Thank You in advance.

    Ok the problem with initramfs on the login was an incorrect entry on grub. Anyway, got it working with this post on my eeepc 1001px. Thank you very much for the help.

    One minor modification i had to do to make this run on my eeepc was to add both the framebuffer script and the initramfs to run on the rc.local so it could run both scripts before the login.

    First off, thanks for the tutorial! Really helpful and appreciated.

    I followed it to the letter, and am now getting higher-res text in the console before starting xorg when booting from the new GRUB entry. Is this a definite indication that the 915resolution scripts are working?

    Just need to know as I'm still unable to get 1024x600 no matter how I change xorg.conf - if I can narrow it down to a specific part that I'm doing wrong it'd save some time.

    Thanks again
