View Full Version : Getting sick with resolution in fedora
20th October 2008, 05:51 PM
Hi guys, I bought a new system and wanted to run rhel 5 on it, no success, was not able to run the installer. So I tryed fedora 9, partial success, but had still problem with my ASUS p5q VM board, (LAN and Intel G45 Graphic on board did not work propper). I tryed the f10 beta livedisk, any everythings did work perfect. So I donloaded the DVD and installed f10, LAN problems have been solved with that, but I still stuck with the graphic/resolution problem. I would like to set a resolution 1680x1050, but I'm not able to set it. Played around with xorg.conf, still no success. Can anyone here help me with this, tryed it since 2 days, and slowly i'm really getting sick abt it. This was exactly the reason, why I changed back to OSX, 7 yeas ago, for every driver the same bad procedure... Help is very appreciated.

Well problem with F9 and earlier with your card is that its newer than F9. You might be able to do an F9 text or vesa mode install, then an update and switch to the intel driver, OR, you could try a recent unity respin. Of course, F10 beta should work....
I'm not clear on whether or not the graphics worked correctly with the livecd or not. If they are, then you might want to just reproduce the exact xorg.conf from the livecd to your install. If not, well there can still be issues and missing information for such new products. You might want to try reading one or both of these for more relevant info on your graphics situation:

Thanks, yes with live CD full resolution is working... but when I checked under /etc/X11 for xorg.conf, there is no file:
[fedora@localhost X11]$ ls /etc/X11
applnk fontpath.d prefdm xdm xinit Xmodmap Xresources
How does this work w/o conf file, this might be exactly my problem, under disk boot I have a xorg.conf file there and full resolution does not work. Any idea?

X11/Xorg no longer needs a config file to run - it will (usually) do just fine using probed/default values. To generate a xorg.config file to edit/tweak/play, run system-config-display (aka "Display Manager").
It might also help if you uploaded your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to pastebin.com so we can see what's going on during X11/Xorg start-up.

If there is no xorg.conf on the livecd, then try without the xorg.conf on your regular install... just rename it to something like xorg.conf.todaysdate. If it becomes worse or if x doesn't start, rename it back.

Sure, that what I did, but xserver did not come up when xorg.conf file was not around. I posted my logfile and conf file with pastebin.org:

You're not going to get any better than what you now have with VESA video driver. End of story. Switch to a different driver.

You don't believe it, that was one of my first approaches ;) Problem is, with intel 810 driver it did not work, even if they say on http://intellinuxgraphics.org/download.html it should work. Which driver can I use instead? How can I find out which driver been loaded on liveCD, I did not find a tool to see that?

Correction!!!! I took the intel Expiremtel mosetting driver, and finally it did work! tnx to everyone
