    next problem ! :screen resolution


    Code:
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier  "Screen 1"
        Device      "VESA Framebuffer"
        Monitor     "My Monitor"
    
    # If your card can handle it, a higher default color depth (like 24 or 32)
    # is highly recommended.
    
    #   DefaultDepth 8
    #   DefaultDepth 16
       DefaultDepth 24
    #   DefaultDepth 32
    
    # "1024x768" is also a conservative usable default resolution.  If you
    # have a better monitor, feel free to try resolutions such as
    # "1152x864", "1280x1024", "1600x1200", and "1800x1400" (or whatever your
    # card/monitor can produce)
    
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       8
            Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       16
            Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       24
            Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       32
            Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubsection
    
    EndSection
    i added "1280x1024" in depth24 subsection
    but when i try to change resolution in kde settings
    it doesnt show in the list.

    did you restart X server OR reboot? if that resolution doesn't appear after reboot, it means Video driver is not supporting that. which Graphics Card do you have? try to set Driver "vesa" in Device Video Card section in xorg.conf.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You have a Ati vga so you don't have to worry about your driver. just go and download it from the http://ati.de/support/driver.html select Linux_X86 for 32 bit processor or Linux_x86_64 for 64 bit processor and after select you VGA card and you can download the installer of the driver. try it and if you still have any question tell us.

    Hope this help.

    Another thing you might try:

    if you edit inittab, and set you default runlevel to 3 instead of 5 (if you are using something like gdm) so that your machine can boot to a command line login (if you login this way already, plz ignore) and reboot.

    As root user, you can run "X -configure" and it will generate xorg.conf.new in root's home dir. You can then backup your xorg.conf and try using the automatically generated xorg.conf. That usually puts you in a good position to edit from there.

    I would also use aliov's suggestion to download the ATI driver from ATI.

    Much much luck to you!

    Slackware version 10 and greater comes with Xorg,but i don't understand all these replies, the best solution it's to use the ATI driver from their site and that's it. ATI always provide a driver for Linux ,i like this company all our server and normal users computers are equipped with ATI VGA's. and we don't have any problem .

    yes ALIOV, i asked the above question because some older versions of slackware uses Xfree drivers rather than Xorg

    so SLHTN can download xorg either of the drivers from the page https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206...8.8-1.i386.rpm

    or

    https://a248.e.akamai.net/f/674/9206...ler-8.28.8.run
