Help - Video Resolution 800 x 600

Post by The Videomaste » Wed, 23 Sep 1998 04:00:00



Hi,
I am a newbie to Linux (Redhat 5.1) and I am using X Windows. My problem is
that I know that my Video Card (Trident 8900D) can support 800 x 600 16-bit
resolution but X only lets me have a 640 x 480 8-bit resolution.  I would
settle for 800 x 600 8-bit resolution in X but I cant seem to get that
either. Any help would be a great help. Respond to group or Email me at

                                                                    Thanks,
                                                                    Robert
