Fedora 7 has an rpm package named 915resolution, so check if it is installed;

rpm -qa 915resolution

If not then install it;

yum install 915resolution

If you do not have a working Internet connection using Fedora 7 then download it:

32-bit: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...1.fc7.i386.rpm

64-bit: http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...fc7.x86_64.rpm

To install type as root: rpm -Uvh 915resolution*.rpm

Finally see: http://www.linlap.com/wiki/Configuri...+Linux#Fedora7

it was empty!!!!!!
i added there RESOLUTION="43 800 600"
did ctrl+x
n now typed in tat # prompt
chkconfig --add 915resolution
chkconfig 915resolution on
startx
and i got the error no screens found!!!!!
IS THERE NO WAY TO DEAL WITH 82845G ADAPTER........915resolution i think is just addin a resolution 800x600 to be initiated with but i don't think it edits my xorg.conf file nywayz....as u know my xorg.conf file is BAD ...nothings initiated there..no monitor section.. the server layout contained
screen 0 "screen0" 0 0
then it does not have ny module section, no file section!!!!
editing tat file so much manually is impossible....no automatic utility to edit it??
has 915resolution thing fixed dis kind of problem with 82845G b4 or it futile tryin it dis way???
plzzz suggest sumthing i've started hating my graphic adapter!!!!!

As I suggested earlier;

system-config-display --reconfig --set-depth=24 --set-resolution=800x600 --set-driver=i810

AS I SAID EARLIER.........i have already tried this but it wat i got after typing this all was [root@localhost`]# prompt
then if i do startx
i get an error sayin NO VIDEO BIOS FOR CHOSEN DEPTH
X SERVER FAILED TO START ON CARD 0
so the solution seems that the problem cannot be solved!!!

nopez dear....tht 64 bit wont install coz u dont have a 64 bit processor....the two files r meant for 32 bit n 64 bit platforms respectively!

and regarding the bad resolution...now tht u can c ur desktop...try making some changes thru the available UI thru ur display settings....
alo...do not forget to check on something like show available display modes for my monitor in the dialog box there...this would ensure tht u dont select an unavailable display mode tht might result in ur monitor going out of sync...
applying these settings would modify ur xorg.conf and hopefully the x server will start wit a relogin....al the best!

Resolution Problem

hey there........i recently had a problem with starting fedora in GUI bcoz i have 82845G graphic adapter....so i used to get root@localhost# prompt immmediately after logging in as root (not in GUI but the prompt was in dos mode type)....i fixed that prob doin this
[root@localhost`]# system-config-display --reconfig --set-depth=16 --set-resolution=800x600 --set-driver=i810
then i got another [root@localhost`]# prompt where i typed startx
n to my surprise i cud enter fedora desktop 4 the first time!!!
but now the problem is that the resolution i am gettin is not so good and my fedora desktop in sumwhat more to rightside so i get a black broad margin at the left!!
i tried to fix this prob by setting depth-32 in system-config part but i got an error saying 32 is not supported by i810.....wid 8 depth i tried some other resolutions but did'nt worked .......n one thing mu xorg.conf file doesnot contains anything about monitor section and horizontal-vertrefresh frequencies....is that the reason m not gettin good resolution??? while in GUI i'm unable to fix the prom by goin to display settings ..it shows only 1 resolution 640x480..no other options 4 changing the resolution there!!!
plzz help!!!!

Open a terminal session and use: xvidtune

FYI: support color depths are 4, 8, 16, and 24 reviewing the /var/log/Xorg.0.log can be helpful.

The monitor manual should have specs on Horiz and Vert scan rates + maybe a list of supported modes. X won't work in a mode that goes beyond the monitor limitations in the "Monitor" section of xorg.conf.

normally all that is required is the correct rates in "Monitor", and the maximum resolution in "Screen". Lower resolutions will be available in the GUI control panel.

If you can' find specs on your monitor, post a description here and we can get you close enough.


Can you crash or damage you monitor? In principle, yes---but I think most modern monitors protect themselves and simply refuse to run.

i see a 32 bit true color 800x600 resolution on my windows xp
this means 32 bit resolution must work wid my pc
when in case of fedora doing
system-config-display --reconfig --set-depth=32 --set-resolution=800x600 --set-driver=i810
startx
i get this error
(EE)(I810)- 32-BIT IS NOT SUPPORTED BY I830
wats tat I830, how it has come into play...my driver is i810 then???
does this means i should stop dreaming bout 32-bit?? and work with 8bit 1280x1024.....thats what m currently working at!!!
