hmm i was able to change the resolution after i changed the color depth to 256 colors.. now it's at 1024x768.. maybe it's the Cirrus video card driver... i guess i'll keep this resolution at this color depth.. surfing the web will suck.. then again i don't use this comp to surf anyway...

thanks homey... i very appreciate you taking ur time to help a stranger... that in and of itself is very encouraging for me to continue figuring out linux =)

You're welcome.

Maybe the driver isn't updated or something. Have you tried yum update?

You just run the command: yum update and that will look for any new additions to what you already have installed.

i did "yum update"
and here's what it tells me:
Code:
Config Error: Insufficient repository configuration. No repositories Found/Enabled. Aborting.
i tried other commands and it tells me the same thing.. seems like i need to point yum to a config file or download repositories?.. but where do i find that?

there's nothing in there.. how do i download update files in there? btw .. should i remove up2date now? i don't have RH update subscription... so i might as well remove it?


btw is the "etc" folder like "program files" in windows?

No, and now that I think about it, that may be your only choice for enterprise redhat. In other words, they might not have yum update for you, but I'm not to sure about that.

The /etc folder is for configuring installed software.
