Widescreen support?

Post by Sir_Sid » Sun Mar 25, 2007 16:50

Is there widescreen support in sabayon. I couldnt find any. The largest resolution I was able to get was 1024X764, but my laptop monitor supports 1280X800. How do I configure this?

If you are running a nvidia card, as root just type in nvidia-settings in a konsole and it will bring up the nvidia settings. YOu can adjust your display there and then save the xorg.conf

Otherwise just edit the xorg.config located in the /etc/X11 directory

In the display section you will add the 1280x800

Hope this helps
