Post Running the fit-pc2 in 1920x1080 resolution in Linux
I was playing around with my cedarview computer board, and I discovered that, with a 10.3 series Linux kernel and only the basic kernel command line, omitting the "video=" option, the system came up in 1920x1080 video mode. If you change the xorg.conf file to default color depth of 16, and use the fbdev_drv.so trick, you get the following Xorg.0.log file, with slackware finding the 16-bit color depth automatically:

[ 53.809] (II) LoadModule: "fbdevhw"
[ 53.810] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/libfbdevhw.so
[ 53.811] (II) Module fbdevhw: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
[ 53.811] compiled for 1.9.5, module version = 0.0.2
[ 53.811] ABI class: X.Org Video Driver, version 8.0
[ 53.811] (**) FBDEV(0): claimed PCI slot 0@0:2:0
[ 53.811] (II) FBDEV(0): using default device
[ 53.812] (**) FBDEV(0): Depth 16, (--) framebuffer bpp 16
[ 53.812] (==) FBDEV(0): RGB weight 565
[ 53.812] (==) FBDEV(0): Default visual is TrueColor
[ 53.812] (==) FBDEV(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
[ 53.812] (II) FBDEV(0): hardware: psbdrmfb (video memory: 4320kB)
[ 53.812] (II) FBDEV(0): checking modes against framebuffer device...
[ 53.812] (II) FBDEV(0): checking modes against monitor...
[ 53.812] (--) FBDEV(0): Virtual size is 1920x1080 (pitch 1920)
[ 53.812] (**) FBDEV(0): Built-in mode "current"
[ 53.812] (++) FBDEV(0): DPI set to (100, 100)

This works extremely well on the cedarview, and gives surprisingly good, but not perfect, performance, even on the z510. I mean the z510 and z530 are both running fairly cool at this resolution level. And, if my sound chip had not burned out the last Time I overloaded the system, the z510 would be doing perfect lip sync on partial-screen videos.

The Xine plugin for firefox gives good video streaming performance as usual. Judge for yourselves.

I found the sound chip again. Very good lip synchronization on part-screen flash videos for the z510. A little fussy about how you plug the analog sound plug in, that's all.
