Thread: Resolution too high in X

  1. #1

    Resolution too high in X

    X appears to start in 1280x1024 @ 60 hz, I want to drop it down to 1024x768@80 hz, I've done some web searching with no success, any help is appriciated.

    I'm running a Radeon in Xfree86 4.1, if code is needed just let me know. Thanx.

    How is that mouse doing? good I hope.

    lemme see - resolution.
    Code:
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier  "Screen0"
        Device    "RIVA TNT2"
        Monitor   "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth  24
    
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth    24
            Modes    "1280x1024" 
        EndSubsection
    
    EndSection
    See that Modes line - change it to "1024x768" I think Xfree86 will pick up the highest refresh as set by the moniter specs. You can also mess with the modelines settings - but they are kinda complex.

    The mouse works! ;D I finally figgered it out which I posed in my Debian and X in tech support. Again, thanx for the code, that goes in XF86Config-4 correct? I'll give it a try in a bit. ;D

    i'm on a mission... ;D

    for the sound blaster live - do a modprobe emu10k1

    you may need an entry in the file /etc/modules.conf

    alias sound-core emu10k1 - or something similar....

    Re: Resolution too high in X

    would editing modules.conf also allow me to auto-load modules or does that take a recompile?

    eek!

    Code:
    libmikmod.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    libxml.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    libvorbisfile.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    That's what I get starting it from a console.

    yea! if you edit modules.conf the modules should load at boot time. it looks like the error messages you have are not kernel related but you are missing some packages.

    Re: Resolution too high in X

    I have to agree about them being missing packages, but from what I can figure out there are no packages by those names anywhere to apt-get install.

    ASCI fixee fixee makee all better! Now just gotta figure out how to get modules to load automaticallly when I boot. For some reason adding the stuff to modules.conf only made for less typing, not auto-installing. modules.conf:

    Code:
    ### update-modules: start processing /etc/modutils/arch/i386
    alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
    alias char-major-10-144 nvram
    alias binfmt-0064 binfmt_aout
    alias char-major-10-135 rtc
    alias sound-core emu10k1
    alias eth0 pcnet32
    alias usbmouse usb-uhci
    ### update-modules: end processing /etc/modutils/arch/i386
    My guess is alias just means that if I type usbmouse it'll take care of usbmouse and the usb-uhci..so what I think I really need is a modprobe usbmouse usb-uhci right?
