What I really want, is an easy way to change screen resolutions ( I hate to
say it, but some 'windowsisms' are just plain handy, like right clicking on
the 'desktop' to get to the change the screen resolution dialog) OR, for
the linux distrib, to stop using non default config places, so when I edit
the usual damn config file, the change actually takes place, as expected. I
don't know why, but I had the most difficult time trying to get X to 1024.
Didn't happen in the usual place, with the usual XF86Config file. In fact,
I gave up after I renamed /etc/XF86Config, and X still started. I ended up
uninstalling the SuSE7 xfree86 3 package, and reinstalled xfree86 4 from
the good ol' tarballs.
now... to get those pretty fonts working.
