Dear all,

I would like to know how to change screen resolution of red hat 5.0?
After installation of red hat 5.0 the maximum screen resolution is 800x600.
I have tried go to system -> preference -> screen resolution. But there are two option 640x480 or 800x600
what sould I do so that I can change the screen resolution to be 1024.768?

Thanks a lot

Are you using a wide screen monitor?  You may want to look into 915resolution...

Have you installed driver for your video card . I think its taken VESA .
Then you have to edit your configuration file and add the following line . For that you have to boot the machine in runlevel 3 .  and edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf file . Before doing take a backup of that file .
