Mandriva InstantOn 2010

1 Historia[2]
Mandriva surgió en 2005 como resultado de la fusión de la distribución francesa Mandrake Linux y la brasileña Conectiva Linux.
La primera edición se basó en Red Hat Linux v5.1 y escogió el entorno gráfico de KDE v1.0. Desde entonces ha seguido su propio camino, separado de Red Hat y ha incluido numerosas herramientas propias o modificadas, fundamentalmente dirigidas a facilitar la configuración del sistema. Mandrake (su anterior nombre) también es conocida por compilar sus paquetes con optimizaciones para procesadores Pentium y superiores, incompatibles con versiones más antiguas tales como 386 y 486 , La versión estable de Mandriva Linux es Hydrogen, y fue publicada el 28 de agosto de 2011.1

Graphical server InstantOn uses the Xfbdev graphical server, from the TinyX project, to further reduce boot time. It has some drawbacks, like not being as configurable as Xorg server, and being limited to the modes supported by the framebuffer kernel driver (vesafb is used for InstantOn). It means that some widescreen resolutions (like 800x480 and 1024x600) can not be used with Xfbdev and the vesafb driver, only standard 4/3 resolutions can be used (800x600, 1024x768,1280x1024).
From the main desktop interface, go to Multimedia section, open User Files (which will run nautilus). From there, you can look for /usr/bin/xterm and run it.  
Changing the resolution step-by-step
Many novice or inexperienced users may need guidance in editing a file in console, especially with the vim editor deemed complex.
  1. Start Mandriva instanton, then browse through Multimedia > Personal folder.
  2. Click the "Back" to get to the root disk, then Scroll through the files "usr" and "bin", and finally start xterm, located towards the very end of the list of executables.
  3. Type the su - command, then the administrator password (mini).
  4. Type the following command : vim /boot/grub/menu.lst
  5. The vim editor opens the file containing the boot parameters, including the one of the resolution.
    1. Using the arrow keys (use the arrows left and right to go after the long drive), and place your cursor just after the value 'vga=788' located at the end of the first order.
    2. Press the 'Inser' button to activate the writing, erase the three numbers and replace them with the value corresponding to the resolution you want (such as vga=791 for a resolution of 1024x768, for other resolutions to see link above).
    3. Once the change is done, press the 'Escape' button and simply type :wq to save and quit.
  6. Type reboot to reboot immediately your computer and apply the changes.
