Actually, it's even simpler than that, in theory. See, if I reboot the system, it comes up with the correct resolution, so XFConfig-4 never changes. In fact, if I just do a su
and then restart X with startx
, it comes up with the correct resolution. However, it also comes up to a login prompt; I'm logged out when X is restarted.
Frankly, I didn't expect this to be so complicated. When I run Master of Orion II under Wine, the first thing that happens is that the screen is changed to 640x480 resolution. How does Wine do this without restarting X? Anybody familiar with the Wine source code?
