Anyway to get slack to be 1024 x 1028?


Yea. Is there anyway to get slackware to display 1280x1024. I know my pc can handle it since I run windows with that resolution (slack and win are on the same box, FYI).

Help will be appreciated.

Regards,
e0r.

Look in your /etc/xorg.conf just take out the ones you don't want,first check to see if it will work with ctrl alt + or - on the far right of the keyboard is the +- to use.

More of a matter of XFree/Xorg than Slack, really ...

But I've had X on Slack running anything from
640x480 to 1600x1280 without any problems if
that is any consolation ...

Have you tried running xf86cfg/xorgcfg?


Cheers,
Tink

if you have slackware10 you need to do
Code:
xorgconfig
if you have any older version of slackware you need to do
Code:
xf86config
You need to know the refresh rates of your monitor, eventually it'll ask you about the resolution.

I messed around with xorgconfig for about an hour with no luck, heh.

Guess it's hopeless

where exactly did you mess up?
Why don't you let us know the vertical and horizontal refres rate of your monitor, and the type of video card you have, this way we might be able to help you at configuring x

To tell you the truth, I don't know, and I'm not going to continue bugging anyone about it so I'll just deal with the resolution or try to fix it in my spare time.

Thanks, anyway.

DOn't worry about it, you are not buggin anyone, this forum is to ask questions and to learn. I'm sure we be able to figure out your vertical and horizontal resolution, only post the name of your monitor, and who makes it. maybe there's some one here who has the same monitor as you do.

Which version of Slack are you running?
10 or older?

Xorg --configure

What does that say?


Cheers,
Tink
