Boot screen resolution problem.....


Hi all,

I'm sure that this is a simple one, just that I'm more simple than the solution! Newbie I'm afraid....

I am running SuSE 8.1 and GRUB to get me loaded.

The initial splash screen displays just fine and eventually the login screen appears. KDE also runs fine.

Between these events, when the information is displayed regarding run levels etc, the screen mode used is beyond my LCD screen (over 85hz). Is there any way I can restrict the refresh rate?

Thanks!

try appending "vga=xxx" to your boot parameters
in /boot/grub/grub.conf

Code:
kernel /vmlinuz ro root=/dev/hda2 vga=XXX
VESA codes:
Code:
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
   vga = 791
   # Normal VGA console
   # vga = normal
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
   # vga=791
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x32k
   # vga=790
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
   # vga=773
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x64k
   # vga=788
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x32k
   # vga=787
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x256
   # vga=771
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x64k
   # vga=785
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x32k
   # vga=784
   # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x256
   # vga=769
