try this as root

 

Quote:vi /etc/X11/xorg.conf
 

that'll allow you to edit the file that controls X directly

 

if you arfe using fedora try this

 



Code:
system-config-display

I recently changed my display adapter in an attempt to change my refresh rate, well now x doesnt want to boot, and says i have a bad display adapter selected, which i probably do.

 

I only know how to change the adapter from Desktop>Display in KDE, but i can only boot up to run level 3 until i get my adapter reset.

 

Does anyone know where to start? i assume there is a config file somewhere that needs to be changed. But i cant find it.
