I've been trying to set my resolution to 1280x1024 without much luck so far. I've read some threads here about editing XF86Config- and I did appropriately- but X still starts at lower resolution.
Some additional Information:
Distibution: Slackware 9.1
Monitor: NEC MultiSync FE991sb (quite capable of 1280x1024)
Videocard: Radeon 9800 Pro (don't have drivers installed for this)
If this has to do with my videocard I will probably need some help getting that to work but all input is appreciated.
