can't change screen rez in suse 9.3 from 640x480?
i just installed suse 9.3 and all seems to be fine, except the display. it's running at 640x480 and when i right click the desktop and go to configure desktop, select monitor, i can change it to 1152 but can't hit "apply". is there another short cut or Alt-a to apply settings when a screen is open? I've tried moving the menu around and resizing doesn't help either. PLEASE HELP!!!

Go to a terminal by doing ctrl+Alt+F2. Login as root and run "xorgconfig" to setup you /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Or you can edit your xorg.conf file directly if you know how.

Note: I use the "xorgconfig" command on Ubuntu. Dont know much about Suse. If that command isn't there, then do "apropos xorg" to see the commands/files related to xorg

it sounds like you have not set up you minitor, if you run YaST and then go to hardware then click on graphic and monitor you can change all your settings from there

I think the problem is that half the window is cut out from the screen because of the low resolution, so he can't possibly use a GUI. Many a times, the screen shifts, and keeps following the mouse. But this may not always happen. Thats my personal experience.
