Thread: X Configuration

  1. X Configuration

    Hi all,

    I have a problem with my X configuration on my FC4 install. It will only
    display in 640x480 and 800x600 using the gnome Screen Resolution. When
    looking at my xorg.conf file, I noticed the following:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Videocard0"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 16
    Modes "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 24
    Modes "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So, I changed it to:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Videocard0"
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 16
    Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Viewport 0 0
    Depth 24
    Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
    EndSubSection
    EndSection

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    But, after restarting X, the screen resolution app didn't offer 1024x768
    as a choice.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks

    You should check your xorg log file.
    I think it should be ... /var/log/Xorg.0.log

    See what modes it can run and what messages appear for modeline 1024x768
