Resolution locked at 640x480
Posted on 2004-11-11
I have installed Slackware 10.0 on a Pentium II 350 box with an 8mb S3 Trio3D graphics card, with a 15" IBM Aptiva monitor. However, I cannot change the resolution past 640x480, which makes a lot of things in KDE or Gnome difficult to do. (Like clicking APPLY because it is off the screen) I am quite new to Linux in general, but I have tried using xrandr and it tells me my only available resolution is still 640x480@85hz. I'd like to get 1024x768, or at the very least 800x600, and I know there must be away, because I've certainly attained these resolutions through Windows on this monitor and graphics card. Additionally, I can't run Xconfigurator. The command is not found. Any ideas?
