Data x window configuration for redhat 6.0

I recently tried to install redhat 6.0 on my IBM desk top. Everything was fine except the x window. After the installation, I logged in, the icons and graphics were so big that I even could not read a complete message in one screen. I did not find any helpful tool in the control panel to help me to fix it, I also tried to reinstall linux and redo x configuration, but the result is the same. Could any one tell me what is the problem with it and how to fix it?

You video card may not be fully supported... I had this problem with a cheap-o machine that I had... Windows only vid card.

Did you try Xconfigurator? I believe that in 6.0, you may manually set sync rates and frequency... It may be just that.

You may have to do a little research on your monitor and vid card, but hopefully it'll pay off in the end!

x window configuration for redhat 6.0

If the x configurator still can not work, does it mean I need to purchase a new vid card? How did you solve your problem before?

RH 6.0 comes with XFree86 Version Current release is 4.1.0 and XFree86 has matured enough to suppord wide range of video cards.

Note: There are many many things that you can try with your current X server to get it working properly.
