RE: Newbie apt-get question
O.K., I fixed my XFree86 problem and am now running 22.214.171.124. Now my
question is, how do I get it running in 1024x768 or 1280x1024? I am using
the FBDevice and the only options configure in my XF86Config-4 is "800x600"
and "640x480". Can I just add entries for "1024x768", etc to the

kernel version is independent of distribution version. You can run
Debian 3.0 on top of either a 2.2 or a 2.4 kernel. If your 2.2
kernel is supporting all your hardware, no need to mess with it.

Okay, try this: open a terminal window under X and run:
xdpyinfo | more
and look for the XFree86 version number.
Also, you might running gdm instead of xdm? Are you using the gnome
ps ax | grep xdm
ps ax | grep gdm
If you are running gdm, your logs are in /var/log/gdm
