Question Configuration for LG L226W monitor


Hello All, (first post.....oh what will it be like)

I am attempting to get my new "LG L226W 22 16:10 1680 x 1050" wide screen LCD monitor working on a linux (redhat 2.4.21-27.ELsmp) box and I can't seem to get it working in the 1680x1050 mode.

I have gone into the 'Display settings -> Advanced' dialog box and selected the 'Generic LCD Display-> LCD Panel 1680x1050' entry. Set the Monitor DPI settings to 18.66"x11.65". Restarted the X server with no effect. The 'Display settings' dialog box does not have the 1680x1050 setting in the 'Resolution' pull-down.

Does anyone have a suggestion.
Thanks
Brian Miller

Does the video card support that resolution and does the module for the video card support that as well.

Configuration for LG L226W monitor

I assumed that, since I could set the display to 1920x1440, the card card should be capable of 1680x1050, but I don't really know. I will look into it.
What do you mean by 'module for the video card'?

Thanks
Brian

The video card will interface with the linux kernel as a module. For say an ATI card the kernel has avery basic and generis one called radeon. But ATI has drivers for better support for most cards and more function of the cards and the module is fglrx. if you run the command ' /sbin/lsmod ' it will list the modules that are loaded. They are for network cards, USB, Video, and host of others
