RHEL 6 with no xorg.conf , and so no monitor and screen resolution choices
I have just acquired a new laptop with ATI-Radeon HD 6490M GPU and a screen of 1600x900.
I have installed RHEL 6.
It only works in 1024x768 resolution.
The System-Preferences-Display option only propose an unknown monitor and 2 resolutions: 1024x768 and 800x600.
There is no /etc/xorg.conf
So, I have tried to generate a xorg.conf_new with Xorg -configure :1 (as root), then copied it as : /etc/xorg.conf
But the X does not work anymore, and I have to remove this /etc/xorg.conf
I probably need to configure xorg.conf, but my knowledge is too limited for it.
Please , anybody tell me how to increase the screen resolution in rhel 6 as I am new in this os.
First, open your own thread for your own question...don't hijack someone elses thread. Second, since you're using RHEL, did you contact RedHat support, since you're paying for it, right?? RHEL isn't free...
You do not need an xorg.conf file any more. I used to have a separate conf file for each section in xorg.conf.d, but with the current X11-xorg drivers, even that directory is empty. Everything just works. Udev and its friends find and configure everything.
I did write a bit of a script to set up the mouse buttons the way I like. Usb intellimouse explorer with 13 event parameters:
## Called from ~/.config/autostart/mouse_buttons.desktop
