Linux Nvidia grahics card enormous display in RHEL 6.4

Hi to all,

I have RHEL 6.4 and NVIDIA GeForce 210 graphics card. After disabling nouveau and installing driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.17.run
display is enormous. I did like this :-

Code:
# cd /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau
# mv nouveau.ko nouveau.ko.bak

# cd /boot
# mv initramfs-$(uname -r).img initramfs-$(uname -r).img.nouveau
# dracut initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

... wait...

# shutdown -r now

Do (*) again.

After gonig to runlevel 3 :-
Code:
# cd ~

Or wherever you stored you driver installer.
Code:
# ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-319.17.run

I followed the guide, responde yes or okay when applicable.

When I see the prompt again,

Code:
# shutdown -r now

Now I should have a nice GNOME 3 desktop waiting for me to login.

But This was not happened. There was only 848x468 max resolution
nothing was clear.

And this card is wonking properly in Win 7 at resolution 1360x768

Please tell me what should I do next to resolve this problem.

Thanx in advance.

I tried with vga=795 but nothing was changed and also screen is one inch right sided as before. Please guide me.Smilie. But CLI was changed with high resolution.

When you installed the nvidia driver, be sure to choose the option to allow it to modify your xorg.conf file. Also install the 32 bit libraries if you're on a 64 bit system, and use DKMS if you have it. (All of these are prompts during the NVidia driver installation).
