Help on wrong Video setup

Post by simonxda » Sun Mar 05, 2006 5:37 pm

I did a stupid thing...My video work at 640x480, but I change it to some resolution that can disply onscreen (my tv)..
Is there a safe mode in Gentoox so I can set it back to 640x480 or telnet to did the setup back or any reset to default.. Thank you.

You can run XBVSET in SSH if you can SSH to Gentoox through your network on your PC.

Here is were you get Putty (to use SSH)

Right, one more thing... Can I SSH using "user" account and then re-login to "root" as the user account display is OK..
