scientific linux 5.4 - changing screen resolution


Hi,

No matter how hard I try to change my screen resolution
from 640x480 to 1024x768, it always stays at 640x480 upon booting.

How do I get around this?

Thanks.

Depends where you change it.

1) su
2) system-config-display

.. should save the settings.

Hi,

Well, as root, I enabled the dual head for my thinkpad display setting,
and the display works now. This is odd but it works.
