change resolution in crunchbang 10 (=Debian sqeeze)


hello there,
I just installed crunchbang on a PC (see inxi output of it in the attachment).
I can change the screen to 1024x768 at each session, but the change are gone after each reboot.
So, how should I make these changes persistent?

"Pin" it inside xorg.conf like so (example from my configuration)

Code:
Section "Screen"
	Identifier	"Default Screen"
	Device		"7800"
	Monitor		"S1701"
	DefaultDepth	24
	SubSection "Display"
		Modes		"1280x1024"
	EndSubSection
EndSection

hi,
if you do not want to mess up with xorg.conf, try to edit your ~/.config/openbox/autostart file adding something like
Code:
xrandr --output LVDS --mode 1024x768 &
use LVDS accordingly to your configuration, so just type
Code:
xrandr
in a terminal and see how it is called in your case...

edit: I see now your inxi output, do you have xrandr installed!? how did you chenge your resolutuion in the first place?

inxi

I forgot to say that the inxi-output was done with a USB-Boot of TinyCoreLinux (vesa) via a UBCD/plop.
This was done for posting the hardware content.
So, the inxi output is not done on debian 10 (crunchbang) and dont reflect the sw-module of it.

I will try your advice.
