You actually hold down [SHIFT] key or keep pressing on [SPACEBAR] key right at very start of Haiku booting. Soon as you select it in Grub and press [ENTER] key. Before you even see the Haiku boot screen.
Haiku uses VESA modes for unsupported video cards and these are determined by your video BIOS. You may not have any other modes to choose from. Are there higher resolution modes in Preferences->Screen? Are you using Intel graphics?
i have suported graphicscard: Intel Extreme x4500 but in new nigtly build is default set to 1024x768 resolution. in Screen Preference app i see all resolutions like 1440x900, too but when i change to 1440x900 and i set apply then my monitor write “Out Of Range”… i think problem was in resolution. its posible to change resolution, or is there any config file? i see only config/settings/kernel/drivers/vesa … this file (mode 1024 768 32) plsease help… it is bug? thanks…
Hi I have a problem with the resolution on NVIDIA GeForce G100. Haiku is the R1/beta3 hrev55181 + 51.
I don’t know if my card is supported. The maximum resolution that the Haiku application “Screen” offers is 1280x1024, but my monitor has 1920x1080. When I give Shift at boot, there is no resolution higher than 1280x1024. In Windows, this works, so the graphics card is capable of displaying a resolution of 1920x1080 32bit. Is there anything I can do about it?
Actually there is an Intel Core 2 Quad processor and not AMD (desktop PC), I confused it with another machine, but it doesn’t matter, the graphics card is listed correctly (Nvidia G100). This computer does not have UEFI, Haiku is 64bit. I don’t want to reinstall Haiku on 32bit but I can try the graphics on another computer with 32bit Haiku (this is the one with AMD). Thanks for the tip and explanation (unsupported card).
Even the 32bit version of Haiku (non UEFI) does not offer a higher resolution than 1280x1024 with this graphics card.
So I’ll look for other less exotic graphics card.
I have another, very specific problem on this first computer, which I will describe in a separate thread.
If you want to use nvidia, go for GF7900 or older as I’ve added support for those in the driver. The plan is to setup a seperate driver for newer cards due to all the compatibility stuff (lots of switches if/else, etc) across generations.
That was the plan a long time already, though it did not really happen. Yeah, I guess so since I can find my way around the driver, in the meantime also worked with the nouveau driver for the latest expansion and fixes, I still have a few unsupported boards here…
I want to at least give it a try, maybe based on my older driver, maybe more directly based on nouveau. I am considering the latter since really, they did a lot of work I’d hate to need to redo… so If I give it a try based on my older driver it will only contain the basics I expect.
Hi! new here, i had some issues but they have been solved except for this one that i will explain
I have installed in a partition the system, everything has been perfect, i have audio, network, screen, i can watch videos, etc…but after the last update that the system has applied when i reboot i have to enter in test mode and in resolution select VGA mode, before the update that did not happen, is there any way to select the resolution in a configuration? I tried to edit the kernel file by selecting VESA mode and frozen the entire computer.
What exactly did you do? You have to set the “fail_safe_video_mode” option to “true” in /boot/home/config/kernel/drivers/kernel. The line should be there already, you most likely just have to uncomment it.
Probably a recent regression in the graphics drivers. Please make sure to report the problem on Haiku’s bug tracker at https://dev.haiku-os.org/ so that the developers are aware of the problem.
Oh, and one more thing: Please try not to resurrect old threads unless absolutely necessary. You can always link to an old thread if needed (which isn’t the case here I think)
