Hi all,

Could someone tell me what to do I have to change to get 1024*768/256
colors running. Right now I can make it run with 800*600/16 (VGA16).
RedHat 4.1 kernel 2.0.27., Compaq Qvision 1024, HP Ultra VGA 1280.

Thanks for help.

Frederic

        First change the X server.  VGA16 is not adequate.  Run
                /usr/X11R6/bin/xf86config
        and set it up for your card, then....  

        edit  /etc/XF86Config  find the lines  Resolution: 640x480 800x600
        and so on.  Change the order of the resolutions so 1024x768 is
        first.

Depending on which version of XFree youre using Compac Qvision
can be a real pain in the a** (I used to run one).
The easy solution is to get AcceleratedX from xi.
It does support Qvision 1024 (XFree dont? (didnt)) and is easy
to configure. I havent tried metroX so dont know about that one.
