That help's me run Xorg setup screen in 1024x768, but when I choose
any of the drivers (ati, ati-3d or radeon) Xorg broken, but if I leave
vesa, then Xorg starts with a resolution of 640x480, regardless of the
fact that I choose in the settings.
How I can start Xorg with a resolution of 1024x768 or higher?
