I am running OpenSolaris.2009.06 on Dell PowerEdge T410 server (x86 machine). It has Matrox G200 video card. Currently I am getting a maximum of 1024 * 800 screen resolution. There is no xorg.conf file under /etc/X11. Moreover, I am unable to find drivers for G200 card either using Google or Matrox webssite. My 26'' LCD display can support more than (1024 * xx ) resolution. Therefore, I have created xorg.conf file with the following details. However, with the xorg.conf file, the maximum screen resolution I am getting is 840*600. I think that something wrong with the xorg.conf file. To get at least the default (1024 * xx) resolution, I have needed to delete the xorg.conf file and restart the GDM. Could anyone help me to get a better screen resolution, please? BTW, I have also posted this question on opensolaris forum, but there is no response.
