Hi,

I have a fresh fedora core 5 install on my new laptop (Dell Inspiron 640m) and while i can select the correct monitor type (with correct resolutuion) i can not select the correct screen resolution.

I have installed the resolution915 package but still cannot set (or even see it in the drop down list) the correct resolution.

Does anyone have any tips or ideas.

Thanks in advance,

Andy

Check the driver being used. If it is the i810 you could try reading this thread:-

At the moment it is using somekind of generic driver, i did not switch it to the Intel driver because my graphics card was not listed there. I will give it a try next time i boot into FC5
