Changing monitor to TV output
I am new but not a newbie, I have administered Redhat 6.0, 7.1, and Fedora. as technology keeps changing so goes the world.
My question is I am able to connect my laptop to my Sony TV using the PC port and it works fine.
Is it possible to make it so it can search to see
if I am connected to the TV port on boot and
change the monitor to that monitor.
Other changes involved are the wireless mouse and
wireless keyboard. and since these are configured
during install can we find a way to make a search
to see if they are being used at boot and configure
I feel this would bring the Linux OS up to speed
and would make a great project.
Let me know if you feel this is a good project.
If we could get X Config to run at start up and
detect the correct configuration it will be a
If this is already possible please let me know as
I need to get it working.
[QUOTE=TB0ne;4722469]Red Hat 6 and 7 are ancient. Fedora's latest version is 17. What are you CURRENTLY using?
Fedora 15 is what I am using. with the latest kernel.
What I am trying to do is take my laptop running Fedora 15 with latest kernel and change the video to work on a sony bravia
model kdl-40s5100. Problem is I want it to be able to switch back and forth between the two monitors, keyboards, and mouses.
all are defined in the xconfiguration file.
The RS232 Monitor port on the Laptop is connected to the RS232 PC port on the TV. giving it video on the TV.
Using windiws xp I get a beautiful picture and resolution. when I try to run linux It boots up until X starts and beeps but video
dose not work. I can however get the console to work using alt F3 Key. it is trying to run 640X800 Resolution the tv automacticaly detects the resolution. I do believe the resolution should be changed to 1024x768 by pushing the alt F7 key. this is not working.
I got to the Console and the keyboard and mouse worked for about 5 minutes before a stdin error apeared. and then I shutdown the
system using the laptop keyboard. the keyboard and mouse are a logitech mk-320.
I want to be able to switch back and forth with the resolution, usb keyboard and mouse and monitor.
So My question is if I run Xconfigurator will this allow me to make the changes I need and then be able to switch back to the
standard laptop monitors resolution, keyboard and mouse. X is difficult to configure correctly and is not for the beginer.
