Re: XF86 configuration problems
You may have to change the default resolution for the Xserver. First
off, when you are in X, try pressing <ctrl>-<alt>-+ or
<ctrl>-<alt>--. This should change the resolution, if the problem is
what I think it is. If it changes, then you'll have to edit
/etc/X11/XF86Config file so that it starts at the higher resolutions.
Get back to me, if it works.
