View Full Version : Resolution Woes

13th June 2004, 05:23 AM
Hello all. I am running Fedora Core 2 on a Sony Vaio PCG-F610 laptop. I don't believe the monitor for this laptop is supported so I'm running the monitor as "unprobed" right now. Web browsing, however, is getting a bit annoying at 800x600. I'm very tempted to change the screen option to "Generic LCD 1024x768"

Does anybody know if this would work?

Doesn anybody know a way to recover back to my previous setting if it doesn't work?

Give it a try.

Copy your /etc/X11/xorg.conf first, if it doesnt work you will be dropped to a console (after having the option to view the X server log output) then you can copy back your saved config.

You should then ctl-alt-F2 login as yourself and type startx.

Your now back to running your old X setup, but your on ctl-alt-F8 screen.

It worked, so no more problems.
