Changing resoution in RH9


I'm trying to change my resolution in RH from 800x600 to 1024x768
when I choose ok it says I must restart the X server for changes to take effect. I thought that was a log off or a reboot (guess not). how do I do this?

Well it depends whether or not you have graphical or test login.
If you have graphical login then simply logging out won't restart x. Text login will. And a reboot will definately restart the x server

To expand on KptnKrill's post,

if the login screen is in graphical mode, press Ctrl-Alt-Backspace.
This will restart your X server.

If you want to change resolutions on-the-fly,
press Ctrl Alt + or Ctrl Alt -.

Check that the monitor you have selected matches yours, I've had that problem: RH didn't want to change the res after a X restart because to monitor I selected couldn't go to 1024*768 even though it could

do I make myself clear? lol

hope that helps
