Description Edward C. Jones 2010-02-28 12:42:28 UTC
Created attachment 33651 [details]

I have a new computer with an Intel DH55TC Motherboard and a i3-730 chip.
The built-in GPU is called "Clarkdale".  Attempts to install the i386
Stable distribution failed because the installer could not find the DVD
reader.  I was able to install the i386 Testing distribution (ca. 2/26/10). 
I have an Acer AL2106W monitor with a length/width of 1.6.  When I boot the
system, neither KDE nor the _console_ are centered on the monitor.  They are
too large in the vertical direction by about 1/2 cm (1/3 in).  The display
is shifted to the left by about 6 cm (2.5 in) so the left part of the screen
is invisible and there is a black area on the right.  The fonts are poor.  I
tried a smaller mode with a 1.6 ratio which also failed.  If I create a
Xorg.conf with the largest mode being 1280x1024 instead of 1680x1050, X
works but the screen is stretched.  This does not fix the console problem.

Will you please try the latest kernel(2.6.33) and attach the output of dmesg? Please add the boot option of "drm.debug=0x04".
