D8x0 Nvidia

Hi there


I thought I would share this information with you. I've been running my Dell Latitude D820 as a hack for two years now and thanks to the efforts of everyone involved with the EDP package it runs really really well. One thing I had noticed but never really worried about was the fact that the only resolution available to chose from the display preferences was 1280x800 (native resolution for my screen). Apart from this and the VGA out not working right the D820 was nearly 100% perfect.


Recently I've been working on a desktop hack for myself and one for a friend and found that we had to set the PCIRoot to 1 in Chameleon in order to enable hardware acceleration etc. Out of curiosity I decided to add the PCIRoot=1 setting to the com.apple.boot.plist and rebooted my Latitude and to my surprise I got a selection of resolutions to choose from for the built in display. I've not tried using VGA out yet to see if it works properly or not.


Anyway, I thought you might be interested in this....
