Refresh Rate + Resolution issues


Hello. I just installed Slackware 9.1 from ISO's today

the install went smooth and everythings works great

first let me just say yes i have searched



ok when i start kde, my resolution is 1024x768 but my refresh rate is 75 hz

and when i edit the config file to 85hz (which is my refresh rate for my monitor at 1024x7..) it says no screen found that can support it

and i have a nvidia ti4600 gf 4

in the xf86config i picked nvidia generic for video card

and i think that might be the problem

and also i cant go over 800x600 @ 24 bit colors

any help would be appreciated

thanks

if you want to change refresh rate, you should change /etc/X11/XF86Config

HorizSync 31.5 - 82.0 (it is my config,perhaps not fix yours)

This doesn't help him, he's already changed his XF86Config file to 85hz.

pureevil, perhaps you should try installing the nVidia drivers for your card.

You'll want to do:

Code:
rpm2tgz msfonts-*.rpm
to convert it from RPM to the tgz slackpack format. Then simply do:

Code:
installpkg msfont-*.rpm
Edit: Typo.
