I just started using linux yesterday and couldn't figure out how to change
my preset resolution to 800x600.
Thanx in advance,
I had tried to set the Xwindows (in RH6), it is a successed
setup but once I enter the Xwindows I meet the problem...
It seems that my screen resolution can goes up to atless
800x640 but on the screen I can see is all the "Giant"
items. It seems that the Xwindows resolution is set to the
corrent resolution but the display resolution is wrong!
How can I over come it?
Thank you in advance.

> Thanx in advance,
the highest resolution depends on your video card and monitor
settings. When you run XConfigurator for the first time it will create a set
bindings for resolutions to video card settings (You'll see them in the
/etc/X11/XFconfig file under monitor section ). TO change the resolution,
all you have
to do is edit the XF86Config file and put the desired resolution in. You'll
screen section at the end of the config file that define all the X servers
you can run.
Normally you will ber running the accelerated server at the end (thoug I
figured out how this server is called. X is symlinked to Xwrapper which is
server... or a script ...)
# The accelerated servers (S3, Mach32, Mach8, 8514, P9000, AGX, W32, Mach64
# I128, and S3V)
Device "Mach64 GP (Rage Pro)"
Monitor "My Monitor"
# Depth 16 <-- Change color depth (bpp)
Modes "1024x768" "1280x1024" <- Change resolution here
ViewPort 0 0
Make sure the resolution you select has a mode selection above. X will start
highest resolution listed, you can then use ctrl-alt-+/- to move up and
down. Note that
this is a "virtual" zoom feature - resolution doesn't really change.
Editing the config file is a lot easier than re-running XConfigurator.
