I just installed the latest debian (6.0.3) on my MacBook Pro 8,1. My screen resolution is supposed to be 1280x800, but I can't get it higher than 1024x768.

I tried using xrandr, but xrandr also tells me 1280x800 is not supported.

How can I get the full resolution again?

Hi, Before. Please write what display driver your system is using. If you don't know, post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf to pastebin.com and provide a link to that. –  rozcietrzewiacz Nov 4 '11 at 15:01
I have the same problem. Did you solve this yet? –  romeovs Mar 2 '12 at 17:06
