Hi all, i have just install RHEL 6 on my PC, but can't reset its resolution to as my wish, because the display driver are not installed. Can anyone tell me plz how to and from where to install the display driver in rhel 6
Resolution: 800 X 600 and
640 X 480 only, no other options
Did you read what you posted? You originally said that you need the display driver....but the error here is telling you that the system doesn't know what kind of MONITOR you have. The two are different. Since you're an RHCE, have you tried looking at any of the RHEL knowledgebase docs on this? Since you're using RHEL6, you are paying for it, right???
Run the X configuration tool to generate a new xorg.conf file, and get your monitors manual, to see what resolution it supports. You can make any modifications you wish in the xorg.conf file, up to the maximum allowed by your hardware. Max resolution for both your video card and monitor can be found in the manuals for those devices. A 'certified' RHCE should be able to easily follow/edit the xorg.conf file.
Spell out your words. And again, THIS HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH YOUR VIDEO CARD...it is your MONITOR that's unknown. The VESA driver is generic, and will work at whatever resolution it can. The MONITOR is what needs to be identified. Since you posted the DEVICE section of the xorg.conf, did you try looking at the MONITOR section??? That would be the place where your MONITOR is defined. It would look like this:
You have to define your monitor capabilities first; AGAIN, read the manual for your monitor to determine what it can do, put the values in. Then in the SCREEN section, you can try to define other modes, up to the limits of your video card (which AGAIN, you need to look up in the manual for it). Again, the xorg.conf man page has ALL the options/syntax in it. Read/understand it.
Did you run the "Xorg -configure" command, as suggested? Did you look at the output of the file it generated? Did you see a SCREEN section?
