http://crunchbanglinux.org – Just a quick note for any others who may find themselves trying to max out the 1920x1080 screen on something like a Lenovo Thinkpad w520 after installing crunchbang in a virtualbox VM hosted on Windoes 7.Obviously to get anywhere close to this resolution you've got to install the guest extras, but even after doing this I found I wasn't able to configure the desired full resolution using the `grandr` gui config tool. To make 1920x1080 an option you'll need to do the following:1) Work out the Modeline syntax for this display running at that resolution/refresh rate by running:$ gtf (HowTos)
