screen resolution

Hi,

I have strange problem, I tried hwd and afterwards when I boot up, my screen resolution is too small (1024x768).  How ever if I do ctrl+alt+F2 and type as root /etc/rc.d/gdm restart I get X with correct resolution.

I'm puzzled. How can I tweak my configs so that I don't have restart gdm to get into correct screen resolution (1280x1024)?

Re: screen resolution

check your modelines in  /etc/X11/XF86Config

however, it is really strange, and it seems that your gnome settings ( gnome-display-properties ) for screen are better set than the modelines in XF86Config ( as gdm reads them also and not only the X-configfile )

you can try from X doing [Ctrl Alt -]  or [Ctrl Alt +]

On first time it'll go only to 1024x768. When I restart gdm it'll work.  :shock:

Try removing the stuff from the x.org file that you don't need..in the screen section...

Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device     "Card0"
    Monitor    "Monitor0"
    DefaultColorDepth 24
    
    SubSection "Display"
        Depth     24
        Modes "1280x1024"
    EndSubSection
EndSection

see if that makes a difference...
oh, make a backup before you begin fiddling too of course
