Changing display settings
Posted on 2004-04-28
I'm running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS 3 in Microsoft Virtual PC on Windows 2003 Datacenter Edition.
I'm using an ATi Radeon 9800 XT graphics card.
During RHEL installation it probed the card as a Trio64 with 4 MB ram I think.
How does the Graphics driver work if using like this?
I changed it to an ATi Radeon 9800 with 128 ram during installation but upon first boot it failed and had to go back default probed settings, so I set the ram to 64 but now when it loads everything is a mess of large colours - I was just about able to login but that's it.
Can someone confirm the key combination to exit X and the command the run display config again. What should I set it as?
How do I speed it up too etc as it's running really slow and I've allocated at least 500 MB ram out of my 1 GB total?
