Solaris 10 x86 supports UXGA resolution on the Inspiron 4100!

To follow up on my previous post, I tried booting Solaris 10 x86 Build61 on my Dell Inspiron 4100 today. I did a simple dry-run without actually writing any data to the HD. I was able to confirm that X came up perfectly in 1600x1200x24bit resolution! My next step is to use Partition Magic 7 to reallocate my current HD so I can try a full install.
Comments:

There's free software (GNU Parted) for resizing partitions; perhaps you should try using that rather than Partition Magic. Also, Solaris could ship it. (It might not have support for Solaris's particular brand of BSD Fast File System, in which case, submit patches!)

John, thanks for the tip, I'll definitely check out GNU Parted. Even if it doesn't directly support ufs fs, I'm sure I can use it for simply resizing general partitions though.
