installed on shuttle


This is my first time setting up a Linux machine...

Is 1600x1200 not possible on this machine right now? I installed Fedora and set the resolution to 1600x1200. At the login screen, the resolution is clearly set to 1600x1200, but once you log into X-windows via GNOME, the resolution gets set to something like 1024x768.

The shuttle is running an onboard video card w/ the Intel 865G chipset.

I've tried setting the memory to both 16MB and 8MB, but it doesn't change anything... any help would be appreciated

Thanks Peter - I made sure it was recognized as the Dell 2001FP (analog). I also tried setting it as a generic LCD 1600x1200...

Can you post the resolution part of your xf86config file. I suspect you just need to add something there.

EndSection

        Device     "Videocard0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
EndSection
You know what's odd, though? I'm now operating in 1600x1200...

The last thing I remember doing is going to redhat-config-services and disabling apmd. I restarted because I'm brainwashed by Windows... but when I logged in, I was in 1600x1200 resolution!
