Question Fedora X-server not supporting "millions of colours"


i hv recently installed Fedora Core (Yarrow) on my comp. but during the post-installation session i hv chosen " 256 colours " as my resolution . i hv an intel845 video card and a Samsung SyncMaster 753s monitor . Later i obviously wanted to change my resolution to " millions of colours " , but i recieved an error msg " cannot start X-server ". My Windows Xp does support "millions of colours" resolution . i tried restarting the X-server with "thousands of colours" in linux but it seems to support "only" 640x480. Anyone has a reply ???

Supports all resolutions in 256 colours (ie. 640x480 , 800x600 , etc ...)
Supports only 600x800 in thousands of colours , rest i dont get an error msg , but they seem to be 600x800 to me.
Doesnt support millions of colours at all !!!

plz get me out of this ....

I think its cause you are spelling "colors" wrong.

Hey, he's using the queen's english. Give him a break. Spelling colour that way is perfectly acceptable behaviour.

Check the intel website, they have specific up-to-date information on configuring Linux for their cards/chipsets. I was surprised how well Intel and IBM seem to be supporting the Linux community. I mean, IBM makes a big deal saying how it's the future, meanwhile you go to the order page and there is no option for getting a PC loaded with Linux--there is no Windows delete option.

they'd better be supporting linux community...considering that huge chunk of ibm income comes from unix servers, which use pretty much the same stuff as linux.
