hi ya "judi"
> I am running x-windows on a Redhat Linux box. It's the fvwm 95 xserver.
> How do I change the resolution on it? I think it's at 1280x1024 and
> that's way too small on my 15 in. moniter. Thanks for your help.
-- Before doing ANYTHING, cp /etc/X11/XF86Config /etc/X11/XF86Config.1280
go into /etc/X11/XF86Config
and change the "Screen" section of the file at the bottom
change the "display subsection:
Virtual 1280 1024
to 1024x768 or 800x600 .. should not be an issue going "slower"
or the slow way: run XF86Setup or Xconfigurator
- caution, you need to know lots of other stuff about your hardware
and before rebooting etc...go to console mode ( kill X ) and
run "X -probeonly" and fix any errrors you see than run startx or xinit
