    Emachines monitor set up

    Hi,

    I am trying to set up RH Linux 7.3 on an Emachine T1105. In setting up the monitor, Linux doesn't list Emachine monitors. So, per the specs of the monitor(EView P3), I selected the scan rate as H:30-70KHz, V: 50-160 Hz.

    However, the screen is not clear and has lots of color lines. So .. 2 questions:

    1. How do I chage the monitor scan rate?
    2. What is the correct scan rate for EView P3

    Thanks

    That would be in the file /etc/X11/XF86Config-4

    You can probably (hopefully?) find the specs on their website, or perhaps you have the literature that came with it?

    Thanks for the help. However, I am a total newbe to Linux. So ... I couldn't get it to work. I found the file XF86Config-4 and tried to run it (assuming it was an executabel). But it wouldn't run (kept saying ...no such command...). So I thought I might be able to modify it with VI ... but couldn't figure out how to open a file in Vi.

    So... please can you help me with a little (lot?) more hand holding? Thanks

    hehehe, all that file is is jsut a configurator file. it adjusts X's setting to you specific wants/needs. Rather than use Vi, which is a bit cryptic, try pico. just pico <path> at the cammand line. Did you find the settings on the website?

    That file is a configuration file, not an executable - it's a plain text file that holds the settings for your X confiration. You can edit it with any text editor you have, be it kate, gedit, vi, joe, pico or what have you.
    Editing it can be quite a duanting task, especialy if you don't know what the fields mean - you might want to check the XFree website docs (http://xfree86.org/) for more info on what's what.
    What goes into those fields depends on the hardware you are using - you'll need to get the docs that came with it and/or info from the manufacturer's website to really tweak things up tight.
