OK, first question using openSUSE 10.1
I have an LG 22” widescreen monitor capable of 1680 x 1050 but my screen configuration is currently 1440 x 900 which is all I could get to during the install, when I tried for native configuration it rejected it completely. Unfortunately the screen looks really rather poor at this resolution, text and objects on the screen are slightly blurred and it is a bit of a strain on the eyes (especially 50 year old ones like mine). If I run SAX2 I get much the same issue as I did in install ... yes I have an ATI card.
How do I go about getting to my native resolution of 1680 x 1050?
