LCD monitor "out of range"
I am trying to load RH9 on my box, and I have searched Google/Linux for "out of range" messages and haven't found "exactly" an answer to my problem. BTW, I have the same trouble with Suse giving me the same trouble. There are loads of messages that indicate "out of range," but does not provide a definite answer, or a process to a solution.
I called Redhat and was lucky to talk to a tech. He gave me a long diatribe to fix my problem, but wasn't eager to "walk" me through the process.
He mentioned something about loading Redhat 9 by using runlevel 3. He also mentioned something about changing the monitor type to "laptop." This makes sense because I can load RH9 on my laptop with its monitor, but I cannot for a desktop which has a LCD screen.
The reason for the "out of range" is because the RH9, and Suse for that matter, loading process ignores what monitor is being used, "generic." The video card, "generic" also, sends video signals to the monitor which is "out of range."
The last thing the RH tech said that there is documentation that specifies how one loads RH9 by using runlevel 3, which I have yet to find.
Is there someone here that may have an answer to this problem. I cannot think that I am the only one that has this problem, and the only one that does't have a solution.
Thanks for your time and trouble.
