Testing live cd's to find the perfect fit. Good riddance Bill! Free at last!!


Howdy from Texas! New to Linux, not computers. Currently trying out Slitaz but need to find how to change monitor settings on my View Sonic flatscreen so I can read the letters.

AFAIK, Slitaz only comes with the generic vesa-drivers which only display a restricted resolution set. Try to install the drivers for your graphics card.

When you boot, it should have asked what screen resolution you wanted. It may default to a very high range. Set it lower.

Just to be sure. Do you mean the window typeset or do you mean before at the very start of the boot process?
