Change to a higher resolution?
I have a NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti 4200 AGP 4X
Graphics Card, and a Gateway 18.1" LCD
Flat Panel Monitor. I am running Redhat Linux 7.3.
It gives me a max resolution of only 1024x768, where as in Windows XP, I
get a resolution up to 1280x1024.
Could any one please let me know how I can change the resolution to a higher one in Linux?
Initially, the XF86Config-4 file contained
only the following section:
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480'
and the DefaultDepth was set to 16.
I tried couple of things:
Changed the DefaultDepth to 24, and added:
Modes "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x960"
When it tires to start X, it just flcikers and after about three or four times, I get a message saying that X is trying to
refresh at a high rate (or something to that effect) and will be disabled for 5 minutes, and then I get back the
login promt (ofcourse, text mode).
I see the same thing, when I changed the Modes for Depth 16 to:
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600", with the default depth set to 16.
Do I have to load new versions of the driver from the nvidia web site?
I ran NVChooser.sh script, and it recommends me to load the following files:
Thanks a lot.
