How to resolve screen resolution problem
My Install distro of Fedora 10 had the same problem. It defaulted to 800x600 and would only go huge and enormous from there. I use 1024x768 for every other distro that I have loaded, so it was clear that it is a Fedora 10 installation problem. Brian928 is exactly right, you likely do not have the system-config-display program.
su -c 'yum install system-config-display'
It will likely also install/update rhpxl as a dependency. When that is successful do the following:
1) System/Administration/Display, Hardware - pick your monitor
2) System/Administration/Display, Settings - configure the resolution you want
3) System/Preferences/Hardware/Screen Resolution - configure the resolution you want to use
4) Log off and back on - all should be good.
It is a bit of a pain but that worked for me. I just did it an hour ago to fix my display. My assessment is the distro build that I got is incomplete. The display program should OBVIOUSLY be included as standard.
Hope this helps!
