• one out of three ain't bad

    Hey Benny!

    The 7" monitor shows in /sys/class/graphics/fb0/virtual as 1280,800 pixels which is excellent for watching videos. mplayer is using fbdev2 (amdgpu) for console display and is noticeably better than the last time I had it hooked up to an i915 based system. It's a keeper.

    For fidonet msging I am using latarcyrheb-sun32 consolefont which gives me a 80 character, 25 line editing window (fullscreen). Looks good especially the large fonts.

    Next will be to get xorg and multi monitors working. Something a bit larger might be nice, somewhere in the 10-12 inch range.

    Life is good,

    ... Ongiet georne hwæt sy god oþþe yfel, ond toscead simle.
    Keenly perceive what is good or evil, and always distinguish them.
