Default 1152 x 864


i have installed the Nvidia Graphic Software for Linux on SuSE 9.0. Very nice

The adapter is an GeForce 3 ti 500, the Monitor is an EIZO 19' .

It run's only in 1280 x 1024, but this is not ok. I feel better with 1152 x 864, but I can't take this settings. Is it possible to change it to 1152 x 864?

sorry for my bad english

Edit /etc/X11/XF86Config to change the 'highest' resolution listed to be 1152x864. X will by default launch into the highest resolution available at the color depth requested (so having 1280x1024 available it will use that).

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

Something like this should do the trick. If the mode fails it will be listed in the log with a reason for failing (your monitor specs could be incorrect). See the log file: /var/log/XFree86.0.log
