iam using redhat 9.0. my monitor frequency is 60 Hz now, it is flickering . i want to push this to 75 Hz. iam using samsung sync master monitor. how can i do this?
this is the etc/X11/XF86 config file data:
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
DisplaySize 310 230
HorizSync 30.0 - 71.0
VertRefresh 75.0 - 75.0
what changes i have to make?/
You should (in a console, and as root) type "telinit 3" [Tell init to go to level 3]. This will stop the current X server and allow you to run "XFree86 -configure".
BTW you might want to exit your X applications including xterms first: telinit 3 will kill them without warning you further, such is the power of the command line.
Afterwards in /root there will be a new file called XF86config.new which you can copy to /etc/X11/XFree86config-4 or whatever.There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.
