Cool Where's the video resolution adjusted in SUSE?


Here's a newbie question for ya. I just installed this openSUSE 10.3 and I can't find where you adjust the video display resolution.

If I open the most logical place, 'Display - Personal Settings' all it shows is a message, 'Your X server is using the RandR extension at version 1.2 or greater which doesn't have any configuration yet.'

What the expletive deleted is that suppose to mean? This is the second time I've installed SUSE on this computer (for practice, I reformatted the HDD and did the install again), and it had resolutions shown the first time.

Anyone know how I can adjust the screen resolution? (Right clicking on the desktop doesn't take me to anything).

I think you do it through Yast->Hardware->Graphics Card and Monitor.

You are correct sir! Thx!

That worked...and I recognized YaST and that I'd been there before so I must have found it the first install, set the res, and forgot.

(I wonder what YaST stands for?)
