problems with video resolution


Hi, every time I load the X server, the video resolution is the highest, this is uncomfortable to me, because every time I have to customize it. I tried to put my desired resolution at first in the Xorg Monitor resolution part, but it didn't work. I have an ATI RADEON x1300 with AIGLX in a Debian Box.

One important thing is this problem exist since I installed the aiglx driver. Any suggestions will be useful.

Regards

Tamayo

Have you tried manually editing the Xorg config file?

Yes, actually, I've modified the xorg.conf setting my desire resolution at first in every part of the "screen section" but actually I've got the same problem

posting your xorg.conf file might help.. we can't diagnose if we can't see what you are doing.



This may shed some light.. look at the sections related to the statements in xorg.conf
