Question blurry lines on my monitor


I have a 17 inch LCD monitor that works fine on my windoze comp. When I have it hooked up to me RH 9 box all the lines vibeate just a little bit, you can only see them when you are looking for them, yet they cause the screen to look blurish sitting in my chair. Is this caused by the video card or RH hat. Thanks.

I had a similiar problem on Mandrake and change of screen refresh rate helped ;-)
But from my experience I can tell that the screen never looks as sharp as on windows when using LCD

The correct settings for the monitor are required. You need to check the docs that came with it or check the website of the manufacturer.


Section "Monitor"

Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "LCD Panel 1400x1050"
HorizSync 31.5 - 90.0
VertRefresh 59.0 - 75.0
Gamma 1.15 1.15 1.15 # created by KGamma
Option "dpms"
EndSection

Go to
http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl

It will help you with your timings.

You may want to turn off anti-aliasing. By doing
GDK_USE_XFT=0
QT_XFT=0

In my distribution. These lines are located under "/etc/profile.d".
