Refresh Rate


I recently upgraded from Windows XP to Fedora Core 1. However, I'm having some problems with my video card. I have a Dell Optiplex SX270 w/ 256 RAM and Intel 865 chip set. I have read posts about setting the video buffer to 8MB, which I did. However, in Windows XP I was able to run my monitor at 1152x864@75Hz. Fedora doesn't seem to like that. It always switches me to 1280x1024@61Hz. The flickering is really getting on my eyes and nerves. Is there anything I can do? Here's the relevant portion of my XF86Config file:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 16
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1152x864/75Hz"
EndSubSection
EndSection

I have the 845 chipset an I've not been able to get it to do any better than you. I think the drivers for linux aren't as good as the windows equivalents.

Not familiar with Fedora - is there a "monitor" section in your XF86Config? That is where the horizontal and vertical sync rates are set, for Slackware anyway.
