Question resolution for linux...Services control


Hi All,

This might be stupid to ask such simple questions, but could anybody please tell me about these two questions :
1) How can we set and reset resolution for linux machine ?? Which command to use for this purpose, or it can be done through a series of steps ??

2) How can we control services in Linux, apart from starting and stopping them, is there any other way of controlling the services ??

Thank You in advance...
Kapil.

First, it would help if you tell people what version/distro of Linux you're using, and what desktop environment.

1. See comment: "Set resolution" for KDE on OpenSuSE is different than on Kubuntu, or Fedora.

2. What 'services' do you want to 'control'?? Stopping and starting are fine, but what other 'control' are you looking for?

Question

Hi There,

I am using Genome desktop on RHEL5 64-bit linux machine. But i am not getting any such file where these settings can be checked ??
Regarding services, i know that starting /stopping services is the way we can trace services. What i am interested in knowing is that whether we have any other way of managing services, or any such command to keep trace of services??

Regards,
Kapil.
