Display Screen Error on Laptop Bootup
« on: May 09, 2005, 03:19:54 AM »
Screen size is set to 800x600 which should be changed to 1024x768 this was caused by using the live cd MCNLive and for some reason this was changed.The strange thing is that Windows Xp isn't affected when logged in.

It goes like this during bootup

Dell Screen-800x600
Grub Boot-800x600
Grub Main Screen-800x600
Suse Loadup-800x600
Suse Main-800x600
Windows Xp Load Up(progress bar)-800x600
Windows Xp Log In
Windows Xp main theme-1024x768

Could it be one of these be the problems

A Setting in yast to change
A Setting in grub to change

Shouldn't it be like this 1024x768 because this is the size I want it.

http://home.tiscali.nl/berenstraat/mcnlive.htm

Or search Rainbow linux

Here is the site and this is what I followed it detected everything and gave me a list of options to change the graphic card,desktop resoulution plus more.

If you have problems to boot into GUI (most likely because your monitor is not detected), type at the first boot prompt: livecd init 3
type at the login: root
Password is: root, then type: XFdrake
Make your settings, navigate with the tab key. When you are done type: startx.
