I installed gnome and added Driver "fbdev" to xorg.conf. How do I change the screen resolution. It is at only 800x640.

Hi Rob,

I just added some hints and discussion on Upgrade_X-loader_and_U-boot

Since this is related to the content found at git://

I thought you are surely directly involved there. Thanks.

Setting Video Resolution

It first depends on what kernel version you are using.

You have to define it at boot time, thru u-boot, this would set 1280x720x16 for 2.6.29.

setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS2,115200n8 console=tty0 root=/dev/mmcblk0p2 rootwait rootfstype=ext3 ro omapfb.mode=dvi:1280x720MR-16@60'

For 2.6.27/2.6.27:


For 2.6.28:

omap-dss.def_disp=lcd omapfb.video_mode=1280x720MR-16@60 

For 2.6.29:


Common Modes: (not every combination is supported)

How do I enable veth for BeagleBoard

I already placed a question on the Ubuntu for BeagleBone discussion page but didn't get an answer yet. Maybe you could step in. I need to use Linux containers (LXC) on my BeagleBone but the virtual network interface module veth dosn't seem to be enabled in the standard build. Could you tell me how to get it enabled? --XXLRay (talk) 05:10, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
