Question How do I reset fedora core resolution


After login I get the blue desktop with the swirly art thing but I don't have a starting point to be able to do anything and think screen resolution may be the issue. How do I resolve that?

I never use fedora but in redhat you can reset resolution through

Code:
system-config-display
It might be work on fedora

Possible Starting Point #1: Alt-F2 to bring up a run dialog so you can open a terminal window in which you can run xrandr to change the screen resolution

Possible Starting Point #2: Alt-F2 to bring up a run dialog so you can run system-config-display as suggested by sem007)

Possible Starting Point #3: Ctl-Alt-F1 or Ctl-Alt-F2 (one of these should get you a text console) at which point you can become root and:
1. "telinit 3" to kill X and switch to text mode
2. login as root
3. "Xorg -configure" to create xorg.conf.new which you can edit to use the desired resolution
4. copy xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf
5. "telinit 5" (or reboot)
