Question Slackware Xorg.conf problem


After a long painful try of installing Linux slackware 10.0 I finaly did it.. Everything seems to work fine

My only problem is like always my resolution. I already had a look at my xorg.conf file and tried to use xorgsetup. But both didn't return well.. my xorg.conf looks very strange.

Could anybody please tell me what I need to enter and where ?..

Monitor Resolution = 1280 x 1024
Brand = Princeton

I personally don't like xorgsetup, I have little sucess with it. Try setting your xorg.conf with "xorgconfig", it's menu driven and a little bit more straight forward.

reddazz: thanks for the help. I've got a question to this xorgconfig GUI it ask me for a card later during the setup.. Is this card needed for my display settings ?!.. I can currently boot slackware with 640x480 @ 60 .

My details are
Princeton P19MS
HZ= 56-80
KHz= 30-80, 30-60

Do I need to include my Monitor name ?

Try Ctrl-Alt-+(numeric pad) to cycle through the resolutions

xorgcfg is another tool.

If you know your horizontal and vertical rates, you can edit the xorg.conf file by hand. Go to the "Monitor Section" and edit accordingly. Here's mine for reference

Code:
# HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
# HorizSync may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.
# NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY.  REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
# USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

   HorizSync   30 - 86 

#    HorizSync	30-64         # multisync
#    HorizSync	31.5, 35.2    # multiple fixed sync frequencies
#    HorizSync	15-25, 30-50  # multiple ranges of sync frequencies

# VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
# VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.
# NOTE: THE VALUES HERE ARE EXAMPLES ONLY.  REFER TO YOUR MONITOR'S
# USER MANUAL FOR THE CORRECT NUMBERS.

   VertRefresh 50-160
