Re: XF86Config not allowing max resolution and mouse wheel doesn't work

your XF86Config indicates that you rely on DDC2 to determine what video mode to use. What's in your XFree86.0.log? Any chance that your monitor reports 1024x768 as preferred mode? If it does then XFree86 will use that mode no matter what else is available.

Actually, it is a limitation of the VBE BIOS -- these typically don't list eg. widescreen modes, and Desmond is using the "vesa" driver, so the X server has no way to force a resolution other than what is listed in the firmware.

Best bet is to update to Xorg from pkgsrc and use the radeon driver or try XFree86 4.7.0.
