[resolution 1600 x 1200] Virtual resolution - help!


Hi all

I have got a question about virtual resolution. I am currently using a Hyundai ImageQuest Q995 (see http://www.hyundaiq.com/pro_q995.asp for more details) 19" screen, wich is able to show my desktop at a resolution of 1600 x 1200 px.

In WinOS everything is fine, but in Linux (Suse 9.1 - 32 bit) a virtual resolution is enabled. If I disable this one I can't get a resolution of 1600 x 1200 px.

I use an ATI radeon 9600 XT, but the drivers aren't installed (problem issue's after installing, the runlevel 5 can't be loaded and after typing 'init 5', logged in as root, the same problems accuring after rebooting).

The configuration of my screen are set as the manual of my screen allow me tho set them. But therefor Yast still says he can't find the screen.

All I want is that my desktop is showed with the full resolution of 1600 x 1200 px without using the virtual resolution.


My screen:

1600 x 1200 @ 75 Hz (Max. Resolution)

Scanning Frequency
Horizontal: 30k ~ 96 kHz
Vertical: 50 ~ 150 Hz

--

If anyone could help me with this problem, I would be very thankful

Greetings,
Maico
