Mepis 6.5 keeps restoring default screen res


Hi, I've just moved from Mepis 6.0 to 6.5.
Once I had figured out the legacy Nvidia driver
for my old geforce4 ti4200 card the system initially
booted to a 1280x1024 resolution. Since I've had this
computer I've had 1024x786 which I was happy with.

From System Configuration/Peripherals/Display I can
change the res back to 1024x768, but on reboot or just
restarting the session it keeps returning to 1280x1024.

Any advice on how to stick at 1024x768?

Thanks

Did you tried to look into the x server config file? Setting parameters there, will be more reliable than setting things in GUIs.
The other thing is, that Mepis 7.0 will come out in a few weeks, so if it still doesn't wanna work, leave it there.

I removed the 1280 resolution from the xorg.conf
That worked great!
Thanks

Yes, that always work. Rumors say, that the next major version of X.org will have a config GUI, so maybe we will need to hack xorg.conf more rarely than nowdays. We'll see.
