Graphics install on Linux

I'm trying to get RedHat 7.0 working on a Dell Latitude c600/c610 working. Well the graphics driver anyway.

See no matter what I configure it wont work. Run Xconfigurator and it wont have the right drivers installed for me to pick etc etc. So I'll run Xconfigurator get a generic driver, select the resolution and then it'll accept it. Ok that's fine with me I don't care what drivers it picks.

The problems I am having though is with the Resolution. No matter what I can think of doing it wont get the 1024x768 resolution. Configure the /etc/X11/**All confige files** and nothing. Still stuck at some huge ass resolution where I can see about a 1/4 of the normal screen I should be able to.

Been to websites to see what other people have done. Followed what they have done and well still no luck for me at all Smilie

Please I need some help.

Yes I know just upgrade the O/S but I can't due to the software that I need to run, it's custom software the company uses and in the later versions of RH they changed some settings and I don't have time to see what that is and fix it the software.


Thanks in advance for those who can help.

get_desktop_resolution(3alleg4) 				  Allegro manual				   get_desktop_resolution(3alleg4)

NAME
get_desktop_resolution - Finds out the desktop resolution. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> int get_desktop_resolution(int *width, int *height); DESCRIPTION
Finds out the currently selected desktop resolution. You can use this information to avoid creating windows bigger than the current resolu- tion. This is especially important for some windowed drivers which are unable to create windows bigger than the desktop. Each parameter is a pointer to an integer where one dimension of the screen will be stored. Under some OSes, switching to a full screen graphics mode may automatically change the desktop resolution. You have, therefore, to call this function before setting any graphics mode in order to retrieve the real desktop resolution. Example: int width, height; allegro_init(); ... if (get_desktop_resolution(&width, &height) == 0) { /* Got the resolution correctly */ } RETURN VALUE
Returns zero on success, or a negative number if this information is not available or does not apply, in which case the values stored in the variables you provided for `width' and `height' are undefined. SEE ALSO
