    Default Problems with intel graphics

    hi, i have just installed Backtrack and I'm having some resolution problems.
    My laptop has a native resolution of 1366x768, but I can't set it more than 1024x768.
    I'm using a Lenovo Thinkpad, and my video is:

    Code:
    root@bt:~# lspci | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    I've found some tutorials in this forum for the Intel i915, but I don't know if they're OK for me.

    Any help? Is there any ready-to-use driver or I have to build them from source?

    Have you ever had an issue starting x?

    If you had an issue starting x, how did you overcome it the first time? xforcevesa or i95.modeset=1 (or something else)?

    Is this a persistent install?

    Backtrack seems to do a pretty good job automatically setting the resolution at the native resolution unless there is an issue with drivers. With the persistent installs, if you use xforcevesa in grub, it also seems to "override" the way things work in future usage and could lead to issues like this.
