On SLES, without graphical interface, my screen resolution is currently at 1280*1024. I need to change to 1024*780 which is the maximum supported by my new rack console. Can someone tell me how to change it? Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Go to Failsafe Mode > Enter your user name as root and password
now type:#sax2 (if the above is not work) then
#sax2 -m 0=vesa (It leads to yast2 > hardware > graphics then set the lower
resolution, (0 means zero)), if it not works then
# sax2 -a (This command automatically tries to load GUI), if it also fails then,
# sax2 -l (it leads to load resolution graphics) to know more type man sax2

    > >Try running sax2 from the command line and see if you can change display settings using this utility. > If you can't, locate xorg.conf and change "screen" section to substitute 1024x768 for 1280x1024 in "modes" lines and, of course, "1024 768" for "1280 1024" in "virtual" lines. If you start X-server with startx from commandline, you can just create a new xorg.conf in the home directory - it takes over the system-wide... The "screen" section in xorg.conf looks like this, and "device" and "monitor" lines should refer to real "device" and "monitor" sections in the file... #################### Section "Screen" Identifier "LCD" Device "nv6200" Monitor "vg712s" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Virtual 1280 960 Depth 16 Modes "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600" EndSubSection SubSection "Display" Viewport 0 0 Virtual 1280 960 Depth 24 Modes "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600" EndSubSection EndSection ###########
