restarting x server


on my red hat distro, I tried resizing my monitor resolution from 1024x760 to 1240x1024 but when I do it it says that the changes will take effect after I restart my X server. how would I go about doing this?

Thanks in advance for this newbie question.

ctrl + alt backspace should do it. Or logout and logback in

Did Ctl + Alt + Backspace restart your X server? If it did and you are still in your old settings then it is your X configuration. The same applies to the reboot. I've noticed that to get higher resolutions the Horizontal and Verticle frequencies for your monitor have to be in the correct range. Double check these in XF86Config against any documentation you have on the monitor.

I tried to change the screen to 1024x768 in the XF86Config file in my m/c and now its got screwed up. So, when you change this file, pls chk the conf of your PC/notepad, your drivers, supported resolutions, etc..

just my 2 cents.
