    Default display settings problem

    Hi,

    I am unable to set the redhat 8.0 display to 1024 X 768.

    The default display setting is 800 X 600. When i
    change that to 1024 X 768, it says:

    Display settings changed
    You need to log out and restart the X server for
    the
    changes to take effect.
    Configuration was written to /etc/X11/XF86Config,
    original configuration saved as
    /etc/X11/XF86Config.backup.

    Even after relogin or restarting, the display
    remains
    at 800 X 600.

    I have also tried changing the XF86Config file maunally ..but had no success
    in
    changing the display resolution and color of the GUI.

    Kindly tell me if anyone in this group has faced a similar situation and if
    there is any remedy to
    this problem.

    Kindly reply ,
    Sameer.

    You might need to change the Hsync and Vrefresh rates in XF86config.
    Consult your monitor's manual to find the maximum rates.
