How to change the Default Screen resolution?
 
hi,

today I upgraded opensuse 11.1 to 11.2.
after restarting the computer, during the startup process the screen went blank with a refresh rate notice.
I guess they changed my default screen resolution that my onboard graphic card cant use.
anyway, I need to change the default screen resolution.
I looked at xorg.conf and didnt see the default resolution?
so what file should I edit and change?

thanks,

danny.

For openSUSE...

You shouldn't start with editing a file. openSUSE uses the command "sax2".

Open a terminal, become "su" then type "init 3". This will stop X and take you to the console mode with a prompt.

Log in, then become "su" again. Next type "sax2 -r" and the installation will re-find and reconfigure your graphics card and screen. If you type"sax2 -r -m 0=nv", sax2 will also assign the "nv" module to the first screen(0). The command "init 5" will take you to the desktop.

The sax2 window has tabs and choices that may be opened to give you a better chance of having sax2 do the best job.

I always set the display size of my screen in millimeters. sax2 is easy enough to use that you can run it repeatedly until you get what you want.
