Setting a Default/Changing Resolution
Is there any mechanism anyone knows of to set a Default resolution?
I'm using IceWM, and as far as I can tell, there are no resolution options accessible from the GUI.
This is a LiveCD I'm building/configureing, so I'd strongly prefer not to add any new software (X software or otherwise).
What I'd REALLY like is to have resolution options at the syslinux boot menu, and I haven't figured out how to do that yet. By the way the "vga" boot parameter has no effect whatsoever on the resolution my OS boots to.
Here are the facts:
(1) My system boots
(2) When it boots, there's a GUI
(3) That booted GUI is IceWM
(4) That IceWM GUI has a resolution (I think it's 800x600 but the point is that it is displaying and there is a resolution)
Given these facts, it seems sensible to conclude that the resolution booted to IS SET SOMEWHERE.
My question is, WHERE IS THAT SOMEWHERE?
It has been suggested to me that xorg.conf or a similar file holds these properties, HOWEVER, xorg.conf does not exist, and I'm having trouble creating one with Xorg -configure or other methods.
(See "Debian Live Project LiveCD Resolution settings (X, IceWM)" in the Debian section of this site)
Because this is a LiveCD system, I'd like to modify the resolution options/settings before ever booting the LiveCD, i.e. There must be a solution that doesn't require me to boot the system, install software, run more/other software...
I'm sure an Xpert could do this, I unfortunately am not one. I hope there's one out there who will help me. Thanks.
