Changing resolution in FC3. Which xorg.conf line do I edit?
 
Just installed FC3 on my laptop (Thinkpad T42p). It defaulted to 800x600 and I'd like to get it to the native 1400x1050 resolution, or at least something higher than 800x600. (This is an ATI Fire GL graphics cihp, btw). I know I have to edit the xorg.conf and add my desired resolutions to the Modes lines, but I have mroe than one line.

In the "Screen" section of xorg.conf, I have 2 lines for Display - both are identical except for the Depth value:

SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "800x600" "640x480"


Questions:
1) Is Depth referring to my color depth?

2) Should I add resolutions to both Modes lines, or perhaps delete one?

Thanks.

My xorg.conf is setup like this:

SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768"
EndSubSection

I'm don't like how fedora creates multiple SubSections. Set it to 24, put in your desired resolution, and remove the rest of the SubSection"Display" sections that you don't want.

Thanks.

BTW, I like getting desktop ideas so I checked out your gallery. What theme are you using in 8/21 (http://www.vincentmerlino.com/module...view_photo.php)? I like it.
