how to define MONITOR in Fedora Core 10
 
I just installed FC10 from scratch (after being stupid enough to attempt an upgrade from FC9, which trashed my entire setup anyways!). My monitor isn't auto-detected (it's a Proview 17G), so my max screen resolution is 800x600. There doesn't appear to be a setting in "Preferences / Hardware / Screen Resolution" to be able to define the monitor. Where do I specify my monitor type, so that I can get my display up to a more usable resolution? I'm sure there was a button in FC9 in the "Screen Resolution" that allowed you to select the monitor type...but alas, not in FC10. Or am I just overlooking the obvious somewhere?

via command line then you can edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

no file
 
That file doesn't exist:

[root@localhost X11]# ls
applnk fontpath.d prefdm xdm xinit Xmodmap Xresources
[root@localhost X11]# grep -i monitor */*
[root@localhost X11]# grep -i monitor *
[root@localhost X11]# pwd
/etc/X11
[root@localhost X11]# find / -name xorg.conf -print
[root@localhost X11]#

No xorg.conf anywhere in on the drive. I have both Gnome and KDE installed, though Gnome is my default manager.

BTW, what does the "All your base are belongs to us" mean in your .sig? I have a Compaq desktop that has this line on the screen during POST. I found it curious to see it elsewhere.

Oh BTW i checked my F10 system and there is no xorg.conf in /etc/X11 on mine either. Strange, it has always been there.

works
 
That works great. Thanks for the help.

BTW, also thanks for the explanation of that line. That is hilarious. :) I can't believe I haven't seen the source for it before now.
