Have you tried using ps3videomode to change the resolution? 
ps3videomode -v 5 will change it to 1080p

In /etc/yaboot.conf you can append 


to make the change permanent. system-config-display will not work for this...

If you wanted system-config-display to work you'd probably need to submit a
feature request to support it. 
Comment 2 Gary Thomas 2007-12-10 03:08:04 EST
Even if this is the case, running 'system-config-display' (which is what
happens with the menu item Sytem->Administration->Display) should not
crash (if you use the menu, it just silently goes away...)
