setting screen resolution within Vmware Fusion
I have installed PC-BSD 8.0 on a 13 inch MacBook Pro, using Vmware Fusion 3.10 I am having trouble setting the proper screen resolution.
The native resolution of the screen is 1280 x 800, but using that setting doesn't seem to work. The VM reverts to 1024 x 768.
I tried rebooting and using the X configuration wizard. The best luck i have had was using the VESA driver and selecting 1280 x 800. Oddly, when the preview of that setting appears the resolution looks correct, but when I accept it, the resolution immediately changes to 1280 x 720 (with black bars at the top and bottom) That's alot better, but with a 13 inch monitor, I need all the pixels I can get.
In the Display settings I see the following:
Video Card: SVGA II Adapter (no option to make changes)
Monitor: Unknown Monitor (no option to make changes)
Color Depth: Options for 16bit and 24 bit. Choosing either one doesn't resolve the problem
Video Driver: Vmware with plenty of options for choosing other drivers.
Has anyone been able to get PCBSD running on a MacBook Pro under Vmware Fusion and get the native 1280 x 800 resolution to work?
Thank you for any help
