screen resolution


RedHat 9
PII 300
S3 savage4 (generic)

I just upgraded from RH 7.3 to Rh 9. My screen resolution is not appropriate with blocky color patterns. The color depth I used in 7.3 was 32 bit screen resolution. When editing XFree86config to that depth I get an error saying that the driver does not support that depth. Any help is appreciated.

Just wondering...

Did you try setting the color depth to something different than
32 bit?

Try setting it to 24, see if this works.

Also, I've heard of some people having problems when upgrading to RH 9. You might just want to wipe it out and do a clean install of RH 9.
