Custom screen resolution

I’m sure this has been answered elsewhere but in doing a quick search I was unable to locate the answer.

I’d like to run Haiku full-screen on a White MacBook (1280x800) but I only have two options available in Haiku (I’m running it via the “Q” emulator).

I don’t know enough (yet) about Haiku to know if this is a Haiku config issue or a Q one, but if someone can point me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.


I can’t help you, but here is a workaround:

If you push space in the first 10 secs of booting, you can get to the boot menu, here you can force haiku to boot at a chosen resolution. (note you don’t have to tick the video fail-safe mode)

Hi Jason,

i think it seems to be a problem of your emulator.
Haiku runs here (native) at a resolution of 1280x800. (Samsung Q45 Laptop)
But, if i start Haiku within vmware under ubuntu (with ubuntu vesa driver) Haiku isn’t able to recognise the native resoluion of the laptop panel (and runs only at 1024x768).
Same thing with ubuntu+vmware and native nvidia-gfx-driver for my laptop.
