Riva Tnt2

Hello!

Just downloaded and installed FC3. But can only get a max of 800x600 resolution with my hardware.

Ideas anyone?

Thanks!

The wife's system has a TNT2 and is running just fine with 1280x1024 and a depth of 24. You might consider manually editing your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to get a higher resolution - sometimes kudzu won't get it quite right. On the other hand, will your monitor support a higher resolution?

same problem

I am having the same problem. I know that the Monitor (a Gateway crystalscan 700 17") can handle the resolution so that is not it but whenever I turn the res on the TNT2 up past 800x600 (I have tried doing this manually as well) I get a blank screen before it goes to power saving mode. If anyone has found the cure for this problem I would love to hear it.

You may have to adjust the horizontal and/or vertical frequencies to match the monitor at the higher resolutions. Try going to console mode (init 3), and run Xorg -configure and follow the instructions at the end of the process. Play with that xorg.conf file and see if that helps. (Keep the original one backed up somewhere, just in case!)

well I found out "A" solution though I am still in the dark as to the "why" of the problem. What I did was I manually went into the Xorg.conf file and added all the resolutions that I knew my montor was capable of and used Ctrl Alt + and - to scroll through them all. For some odd reason 1024x768 and 1152x864 blank the screen. I now have the res set at 1280x1024 and all is well.

Thank you much

Those particular resolutions probably sent the sync frequencies outside the range of the monitor. The wife runs at that resolution, too, but I set it that way from the outset.
