I have sucessfully installed Fodora Core 3 on AMD64 system. Fedora spotted my video card which is ATI 9200. However, I had to accept 256 colors and 800x600 default screen. I was able to identify the Sony monitor I have CPD-420GS from the listed monitors.
I went to ATI and found a driver for the x86-64 Fedora. I installed the driver in Standalone mode init S. Then rebooted the system. Fedora accepted the new driver and when I was able to get to the KDE then I was able to select the screens icon. Now I had different levels of screen resolution as well as thousands or millions of colors. However, if I select a setting that is anyway different from the 256 and 800x600 then the login screen fails to appear. It seems to hang since I am unable to get the login prompt to appear.
So, my first question is how can I return to console when the GUI login promt is unavailable to me.
Next, /etc/X11/xorg.conf is the default description for GUI for Fedora. What are the other X11 files that need adjustment to allow a higher setting of say 1024X768 and millions of colors?
Thanks to all that respond.
