Fedora 9 - changing screen resolution with sys-config-display (or not)
Having fresh installed Fedora 9, I am struggling with changing both the
Monitor type and the screen resolution.
System->Administration->Display->Hardware allowed ne to change the
Monitor type to Generic LCD 1280x1024
Further attempts do not update /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Setting the monitor to 1280x1024 gave me a screen resolution of 1024x768
Attempting to change this by either
System->Preferences->Hardware->Screen Resolution or
System->Administration->Display->Settings, I was only offered either the
same or lower resolutions.
Editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf to a higher resolution solved the problem.
In each case I was careful to make the change and then re-login.
Looking at Redhat Bugzilla, it appears there have been problems with
sys-config-display since Fedora 7 although I did not suffer with this on
numerous Fedora 8 boxes I setup.
Is this a common problem? How do others change screen resolution?
I would be grateful for advice
