How to change screen resolution
 
Hi All

I'm new to Linux, i installed RH9 with out any problem. I want to change screen resolution from 800X600 to 1024X768. I tried with display settings didn't work out. I'm using a Dell GX260 with intel 82485G vga card.
Tell me a way to change the resolution

edit /etc/X11/XF86Config.(or /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 if it is there)

What kind of changes do i need to the XF86Config

you can see there,there is a section like display or something,and there the screen resolutions are given.
else you can use 'redhat-config-xfree86' or 'xf86config' utilities.

I've just moved the thread to Linux - Software. Member Intro is a good place to say 'hello', but questions should be posted in other forums. I think your thread fits this forum well.
