Question Display Setup on FC4

I was using my FC 4, but i changed the Display Resolution to a resolution that my monitor can't handle, now, when FC boots, I get a message from my monitor "Out of Range" which indicates me that the software is trying to use a resolution beyond my monitor capabilities.

However i can still log into another FC4 console text session, but i don't know where can i configure my display to the proper resolution, what files do i need to modify to make Fedora GUI work again.

I am new to LINUX, and i do not know how to tweak the configuration files to change my FC4 display resolution.

Need Help !

In the text mode, you can run a text/ascii display setup. I think that this is the command.


I believe that this is the one that will ask you to choose your video card and monitor again. Be sure to have the monitor's sync ranges ready in case you can find your monitor on the list, as you need to put them in yourself. After that I think it asks you to set the resolutions that you want available to select from. Anyway, give that a whirl.

Ahh... and be sure to be root.
