    Monitor Sync

    I installed SuSE, everything went fine until the monitor configuration dialog, i set it to 1280x1024 as i always do with any OS but I didn't realise that the sync rate was 80 hz, clicked nezt, my system rebooted and now when I try to access SuSE I just have a native monitor dialog saying "sync out of limit" no I just have access to a command prompt, I changing through Yast but it can't, Where is the file with these settings? Which command can I use to edit the file because nano wasn't installed in my package selection.

    The file you want to edit is /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

    You cannot edit the refresh rate directly, but those lines have a direct influence on refresh rates:
    HorizSync       31.5-90
    VertRefresh     59-75
    Change those values as specifyed by your monitor's manufacturer.

    Instead of nano, you can use vim, or pico.
