Is it possible to change the monitor's refresh rate?


Hi, I think my refresh rate is something like 85 right now, just wondering if I can change that in linux
(I'm running Mandrake Linux 8.2 and I use KDE)

You can always edit the XF86Config file.. in some cases it might be XF86Config-4..

Usually your XF86Config file is in /etc/X11 Here is the documentation found on XFree's site.
