Changing screen resolution


Hi all,

I made the stupid mistake of changing my screen resolution setting in Fedora Core. Now when I boot up I cant see anything as my screen is out of range as soon as it gets past the boot loader for Fedora and starts loading up the services. Is there any way to change the resolution settings from the command line in the boot loader?

Thanks
Zayne.

Hi and welcome to LQ. Take a look here for something that may help. Once you boot into runlevel 3, you will need to run system-config-display as root and change the resolution.
