screen resolution


Hello

And merry xmas to all!

I installed FC3 not long ago and I could pick 600x400 800x600 or 1024x768

After installing FC3 I only have the first two choices with FC2 I had all three. How do I go about using X or edit a file to get my 1024x768 back?

Thanks

Linuxhavok

Log in as root and make a minor modification, adding whatever screen size you want, to your /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Here is what it would look like (toward the end of the file)...

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Videocard0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 16
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection
