Re: xorg.conf

I was only getting 800x600 on my screen and I needed to make it 1280x1024.

I had to use system-config-display. Xorg -configure did not work. I got an error message. The low resolution was probably because I am using a KVM.

Hi Caroll and welcome

If your monitor and keyboard setup are recognized by X, thorough the new nefarious ways, then you do not need to have an xorg.conf. If you need something non-basic, then you may choose to download and run  system-config-display (A gui version will appear in Gnome) or you may choose to create your own xorg.conf.

I for one had to create one for my system.

"In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In
practice there is.
