I just recently got a brand new monitor (nice 19 in. too
). Now I should be able to finally get a decent resolution (i.e. 1600 x 1200
). However, I haven't been able to.
I installed FreeBSD the other day to try it out. The XFree86 setup had my card, an old ATI Rage LT Pro, which allowed me to go up to 1600 x 1200 res. I uninstalled FreeBSD today to go back to Linux.
Before I never had to bother reconfiguring my video card, as my monitor sucked so bad I wouldn't be able to tell a difference. I first ran 'xf86config' but only one ATI card showed up. So I decided to update. I managed to update Xfreee86 all by myself the first try. I reran xf86config and to my dismay the ATI Rage LT Pro wasn't listen. I tried using some other drivers in some vein attempt to be able to run at 1600 x 1200 res, but to no avail.
Anyone have any suggestions as to what to do? I would love to actually be able to multitask without watching everything come tumbling down due to a shoddy OS (aka Windows
I also am still having trouble with my sound card. The post can be found here

Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks.
