During the initial installation (slack10), I chose a VGA text mode instead of the default 80x25 thinking, "hey that might be cool". Well during bootup now (after LILO), I get the message:
BIOS data check successful
You passed an undefined mode number.
Press <RETURN> to see video modes available, <SPACE> to continue or wait 30 secs"
So I press enter and then "0" for 80x25 text mode.
How do I go about setting 80x25 to my default mode so that I don't have to press enter and 0 every time I bootup. On that same note, how do I reduce LILO's wait time (ie: the time it takes to load on its own if you don't press anything... it's currently at 90 seconds, I think).
While in X, I have it set to 1024x768... but when X first starts, it is in 1280x1024. So what happens is around the time the splash comes up, it switches to 1024 and throws the splash off centre. Not really a big problem, just an anal asthetic thing
Can I set X to start in 1024 instead of switching to it?
Sometimes when I start X, the scroll wheel stops working. If I close X and reboot the system, and THEN start X again the scroll wheel comes back. But then the next time I sit down at the PC and start X again, the scroll wheel might not work again (it doesn't happen everytime, but when it does happen it fixes when I reboot). This didn't seem to happen until I installed the Crystal Cursors (could just be coincidence).
