screen resolution and xorg.conf
After a fresh install of Slack 11 and running xorgconfig/xorgsetup and then startx I found that my screen resolution was stuck at 640x480. I got out of x and reconfigured them with xorgconfig/xorgsetup, but once again it stayed at 640x480. I manually edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf to include Modes “1024x768”. Still nothing. I created a new user and ran xorgconfig and still no luck. I manually edited the xorg.conf file inside the home directory of the new user, didn't help. I've installed Slackware before on this exact system with the exact same config settings and it worked fine. The only thing different is I'm using the new big26 kernel instead of the old 2.4 one. My graphics card is a Radion 9800 pro. The monitor is a 17 inch CRT KDSUSA that came with an old emachine.

Did you install the Kernel-generics in the huge26.s directory, which is the 2.4 generics? If not, that might be something to consider.
I'm using nVidia so can't speak to the ATI, but my huge26.s install works fine with VESA resolutions (1024 and up).
