hi,

you could use:
# fbconfig -prconf
to see your current settings and the possible settings...
to change it:
# fbconfig -res video-mode -depth 8or24

you can only change this settings while the xserver isn't running!

sorry, but thats not true at all... it belongs to your graphikcard..... m64config is only for m64 cards (like in a blade100)... there are similar tools for pgx32 or pgx64 but fbconfig always works, because it configure your framebuffer... the other tools only use fbconfig in the backround.....
