Problems in RedHat 9.0 (Dialing and Resolution)


Hi all, I am new to linux and I have installed RedHat 9.0 without a glitch. I just have a few queries.

1) I just setup a connection... but I can't find the dialer.. I looked around for help and saw that it should be in Menu -> Internet But it isn't there!

2) I am on 800x600 I am trying to use 1024x768 it says "Restart server x for changes to take effect" how am I meant to do that? I tried restarting my computer it doesn't work

I am using 750 mhz Duron CPU 312 MB Ram a Riva TNT2 Graphics card

Any help is a appreciated, thanks.

1. don't know about #1 since i don't use dialup. but you can try the command in your shell terminal:

kppp

2. ctrl-alt-backspace will restart the X server

could be you need to edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file to set 1024x768 as the default screen resolution.

look for something like this:
Code:
Section "Screen"
	Identifier   "Screen0"
        Device       "VESA driver (generic)"
        Monitor      "Monitor0"
	DefaultDepth	24

	Subsection "Display"
        	Depth       24
                Modes       "1400x1050" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubsection
look at Modes. default screen resolution is the first entry in Modes.

edit: better yet, post your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file.

Im not as worried about res at the moment cause I need to restart everytime to access linux then transfer it somehow to my other drive so I just need to get a conecction first. Also I did check that file out and it only had 800x600 and 640x800 possible because no drivers have been installed? Gah I need to dial up as priority number 1

well, if you're just using generic drivers, you should be able to get 1024x768 at a color depth of 16 easily. post your XF86Config-4 file.
