I have Red Hat 7.0 and I am not satisfied with the size of my desktop. It is set on 640 X 480 and I cannot change it. I repeatedly ran the xf86config and make the changes, but they do not take effect. I rebooted and the settings stay the same. I have a Diamond Monster Fusion video card w/16 meg. My monitor is a Futura LP795 17" flat screen with 30-95 horizontal refresh and 50-160 vertical. I have choosen 600 X 800 and 24 bit color. It doesn't change. What am I doing wrong?

There is another utility included with RH for doing this at the command line..... Xconfigurator.

I used it today on Red Hat 7.1 when I switched monitors and it worked flawlessly. It's very straightforward.

Give it a shot. Hope that helps.
