Dear all

I want to know to adjust the screen resolution to be 1024x768 at Fedora 6.
Now, the resolution is 800x600.

Thanks
Francis

Dear remeshk

After execute "system-config-display"
there only two options for me "800x600" or "600x480"
having another solution for me to change the resolution to be "1024x768"??

Thanks for ibu1, but it still doesn't work for "1024x768"

Thanks both of you!

At terminal, gain root access:

su

Then, run this command:

xranar -q

This will tell you the name of your screen, which looking at you xorg.comf, is probably "Screen0".

So, then run this using the name of your screen.  I used Screen0.

xrandr --output Screen0 --mode 1024x768

Another note:  whenever messing with X settings, create a backup of xorg.conf.  Most utilities that edit this file automatically make a backup, but just in case, I wouldn't count on them and make one myself.
