We are planning to support multi-resolution in our Linux Application.


Currently for example our linux application can run on laptops/notebooks
which generally have a multi-monitor and multi-resolution display.


For example in my laptop, I have "Plug and Play Monitor Mobile Intel(r)
915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family".


Question: I have gone through the datasheet of above card and it says
"Source Resolution up to 1920x1080 with 2 vertical taps" or Maximum
Source Resolution: 720x480x32.


But the system->properties show me the following resolutions


640 by 480, 256 Colors, 60 Hertz

640 by 480, Hi Color (16-Bit), 60 Hertz

640 by 480, True Color(32-Bit), 60 Hertz

800 by 600, 256 Colors, 60 Hertz

800 by 600, Hi Color (16-Bit), 60 Hertz

800 by 600, True Color(32-Bit), 60 Hertz

1024 by 768, 256 Colors, 60 Hertz

1024 by 768, Hi Color (16-Bit), 60 Hertz

1024 by 768, True Color(32-Bit), 60 Hertz


How do we decide which resolutions are available in our current display
hardware ?
