I've been running Slackware 10.1 on my system for a few weeks right now and so far I'm very pleased about the entire look and feel of linux. But after a while it started to annoy me that I couldn't have that resolution of 1280x1024 I had on that other OS. Right now KDE has set the default resolution to 1024. I've installed the latest nvidia driver for my Geforce 5700 LE and I updated the xorg.conf file accordingly. At depth 24 I added the resolution I wanted but nothing happened after I re-started X. I updated KDE to 3.4 (Thought that might help). I read some other threads about this topic but I couldn't find anything that helped me.
So now I turn myself to the linux experts.
If you can help me, please try so!
