Switching resolution to 1024x768
Posted: Fri Nov 19, 2004 4:58 pm
I'd like to switch the resolution of GentooX to 1024x768 as I am only working with VNC and don't need any display on my TV.
aMule for example isn't working properly in 800x600.
Is it possible to switch the resolution or can the Geforce 3 in the X-Box only display 800x600 and it's therefor not possible?

Basicly, you could make your own vnc startup script or something..
Code: Select all
ebegin "Check config"
ebegin "Starting vncserver"
su - taily -c 'export PATH=$PATH:/usr/X11R6/bin/ && /usr/bin/vncserver :1 -geometry 1024x768 -depth 16 -httpport 3080'
ebegin "Stopping vncserver"
su - taily -c 'export PATH=$PATH:/usr/X11R6/bin/ && /usr/bin/vncserver -kill :1'
(You might wan't to change the su - taily
: to your own username and the port)
# touch /etc/init.d/vnc
# nano -w /etc/init.d/vnc <--- paste the code (or your own code)
# chmod +x vnc
# rc-update add vnc default
Allso, you do not need eg. xdm to startup..
so do rc-update del xdm
(incase you don't wan't X to start on the tv screen etc)

So how did this go?
Can this be done on a tv?
how can I move windows up above where I can see them in kde?
