    Nvidia drivers isntalled, wrong resolutions


    I have just installed the NVidia display drivers for Slackware Linux. I am on a 7800GT, i guess that while the drivers are installed they are not being used? either way, can anyone tell me how to achieve a higher resolution than 1024.768 on my 1280x1024 monitor?

    Have you tryed setting up the resolution manually in /etc/X11/xorg.conf? Don't forget to make a backup of this file before changing anything.

    You can restart the X server with CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE so the changes take effects.
