Hello,
I've got an NVIDIA nForce2 mainboard (Epox EP-8RDA6+Pro) with a discrete Matrox Millenium P650 AGP 8x graphics card and a 17" ViewSonic E70f CRT screen attached. My current resolution is 800x600@60Hz. I'd like to change that to 1024x768@85Hz, that's how it's configured in Windows XP. I can see from /var/log/messages that the chipset and agp driver gets loaded, but I couldn't find out which display driver is getting used. I also tried sudo XRandR, but this command was not found. Are there any other command line utilities I could use, or is there a configuration file where I can enter these values manually? The chipset of my graphics card is Parphelia.
Any help will be appreciated.

You may set the screen resolution of the live-cd with a boot parameter:
Code:
screen=1024x768

Do not hit "ENTER" at your boot selection but "TAB". Afterwards you can add more boot parameters or modify boot parameters. For more information see our online help at https://anonymous-proxy-servers.net/en/ ... ve-cd.html
