 As discussed on the support mailing list (no archive?), Xorg doesn't let
 me set my monitor resolution beyond some imaginary barrier, which happens
 to be at 1024 pixels wide, 768 pixels high.

 Display setup ("7" at the OS loader menu) offers me those higher
 resolutions, but doesn't manage to tell Xorg to actually use them. Here's
 my xrandr output, after manually adding the optimum resolution:

 $ xrandr
 Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
 default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
    1024x768       76.0*
    800x600        73.0
    640x480        73.0
   1152x864 LG (0x105)  108.0MHz
         h: width  1152 start 1216 end 1344 total 1600 skew    0 clock
         v: height  864 start  865 end  868 total  900           clock

 This 1152 pixel resolution shows up in KDE's display settings panel as
 well, but KDE fails to actually set it either.

 Attached /var/log/Xorg.0.log as found right after desktop startup.
