    I need help configuring the display from the shell


    I installed Fedora Core 2 with the default Personal Desktop configuration.

    The only problem is that when booting, my monitor displays "OUT OF SCAN RANGE" -- so I'd assume there's something wrong with it, of course.

    I just don't know how to configure it via the shell. I know my hardware settings already via Windows 2000...

    To configure X using a program, at the console as root type
    Code:
    $ xf86config
      OR
    $ xorgconfig
    Otherwise just edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config or /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    If you use the first or second for the above, depends on if you have XFree86 or Xorg for your X server.

    Neither of those commands execute anything. Yes, I am logged in as root...

    What directory may I need to cd to in order to run them?

    Probably /etc/X11/bin to check do
    Code:
    $ find / -name xorgconfig 2>/dev/null
    And if that comes up with nothing replace it with xf86config.
