help with screen resolution
 
Hello,

I use fedora 8. Just to play I changed my screen resolution from
1280x1024 to 1280x800. I logged out, logged in again (now with
resolution 1280x800) and then I wanted to change again to 1280x1024 but
I saw that this was impossible. I only get 1280x800 as highest possible
choice. How can I restore my screen resolution to 1280x1024.


Any help very appreciated.
Jan

You need to get to the System Administration Display and provide
your root pass word. When it comes up if you can't get the size you want
go to the hardware tab and see what the system has for your VGA plugin
and your monitor. Make sure the monitor shows a capability for at least
what you want.


Now you should be able to select the proper size and your set up.

You might need to run 'system-config-display --reconfig' from a root
terminal. It should allow you to start fresh without holding onto older
settings.
