Any distros that support 1280x1024 resolution


I used to use linux about a year and a half ago but I got a new monitor and the max resolution was to small on morphix so I went back to windows.

Are there any distros that have higher resolutions? Any live CDs?

Try adding some Modelines to your /etc/X11/XF86Config file. I have:

Code:
# Generated by the XFree86 Modeline Generator
# http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl
Modeline "1280x1024@60" 114.98 1280 1312 1744 1776 1024 1045 1055 1076
Modeline "1280x1024@60i" 49.50 1280 1312 1496 1528 1024 1047 1053 1077 interlace
Modeline "1280x1024@75" 156.43 1280 1312 1904 1936 1024 1043 1056 1076
