help.. how to apply new settings for XF86Config in debian?
i recently installed debian linux v3.1 on my dell latitude cpx j750gt laptop. while installing i didn't cared much to see in detail about the xf86configuration and left all values with defaults. now, after installation, i am getting max resolution of 800x600, where as my lcd monitor supports 1024x768. To set this, i logged out of the graphical screen and from command line i started xf86config and made the configuration again which was successfully written under /etc/x11/XF86Config. now, the problem is debian linux doesnt use this new configuration file as for loading gui, but it always uses /etc/x11/XF86Config-4.
I hope you understood my problem and so can you please tell me, how exactly should i configure my video adapter and monitor settings in debian?
also, does anyone know if there is anyway to find out the horizontal and vertical refresh rates for video adapters? in my laptop i am having ati rage mobility 8mb video adapter and in case by any chance someone happen to have this particular video adapter then could you also please pass me the refresh rates.
apart from this debian linux i also have windows xp loaded on this same laptop and is there any way to know from windows xp the refresh rates?
