you may need to altre your xfree86 settings by manual, try to use lower resolltion like 800x600 and boot to graphical.

 

I'm useing 18" LCD, 1280x1024. works fine on here. i also select the "Generic LCD1280x1024" type of monior when i was in the installation setup. it works fine to me. I think you shoul try to use 800x600 once it work. try 1024 x 768..

 

configure the graphic in console is: XFree86

something like XFree86 xfree86.conf or so. not sure. try on search, i'm sure it will tells you how to do it.

 

hope this help ya.

redhat-config-xfree86 will allow you to pick the correct video card and monitor type

 

go for a generic LCD panel as vemon already suggested and make sure it is @ the resolution that your LCD is designed for

 

cheers

don't you think that means you need to use text install and setup X after?

I just got a new LCD monitor and I'm having some issues with it. It's working but not quite right. I tried redhat-config-xfree86 but I don't seem to have that on my fc5 system. Is there something similar that I could use?

in fedora core 5 try

 

system-config-display

 

 

it's been that way since Fedora core release 2

 

Fedora Core release 2 was noticeable because it replaced XFree86 with Xorg and in addition it introduced an implementation of Selinux to the masses (installed by default but disabled). It's also worth mentioning that this release of Fedora continued in the move away from Red Hat being ever present in the OS by renaming all those 'redhat-config-xxx' commands to 'system-config-xxx'. However, the Red Hat logo was still clearly visible in the Gnome menu.

I'm not sure exactly why, but for some reason I don't have a lot of the system-config packages. I'm at work and installing them remotely, so I'll try it out as soon as I get home. I'll keep ya's posted. Hopefully eveything will go good.
