[20071029] Note to self: Getting X with 1024x768 in qemu (Updated)
I keep on forgetting, and will abuse my blog now to remember how to get a standard installation of NetBSD 4.0(RC3 here) with standard X to run 1024x768 in Qemu:

  • In the "Monitor" section, add:
         HorizSync 28-51
         VertRefresh 43-60 
  • Keep the "cirrus" driver

  • In the "Depth 16" subsection of the "Screen" section, add:
         Modes "1024x768" 
Update: This also goes for Parallels. A "DefaultDepth 24" may be needed in the "Screen" section.
