    Default graphics problem

    hello,

    I have a very small screen 7 inch =)

    and often i cant see the bottom of a program because there is a limit
    on how far i can bring the program with alt.

    Is there a way to get rid of this limit ?

    many thanxs

    The guy did give you aid. Try to search and try reading the tutorials and guide section on the main page of the forums this is where we like to keep the tutorials and guides. Sometimes they get away but either a mod or a good search can rope them back in sight.
    Its there I promise.

    ok , i apologize my bad , it was there after all. It said i should

    If you want to change the resolution then you need to edit the syslinux.cfg file. This is found in
    Code:

    #/mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/

    So you will need to use an editor for this.
    Code:

    #nano /mnt/sda1/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg

    I changed the sda1 to hdc1 but there seems not to be a syslinux ?

    What do you mean that it is not there?
    If you find the partition where the /boot/ folder is located then you can follow it down until you get to
    /boot/syslinux/
    once there you can do an ls to see what all is stored there and you should see something like ldlinux.sys, lilo*, and syslinux.cfg*
    this is the one you are looking for.
    For my situation it lookes like this .

    bt~# cd /mnt/sdb1/boot/syslinux/
    Then again do an
    #ls to find the syslinux.cfg file
    if you are not in the right place and you do the nano part then nano will create a file with the name you specified.
    It however will not save the file until you tell it to save.
    Of course for me it would look like so
    #nano /mnt/sdb1/boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg

    I am now going to guess that you did not do a usb install or flash card install but rather some sort of real install ?
    Correct?
    What tutorial did you use ?
    Please find it and post the link to it here
    I know that you may not be able to post valid links so just do

    If you did a real install you need to pass the vga statement to lilo. so edit your lilo.conf which is located in the /etc directory.

    nano /etc/lilo.conf

    * prompt
    * timeout=1200
    * change-rules
    * reset
    * vga=791

    * #linux bootable partition config begins
    * image = /boot/vmlinuz

    When you see this part you need to change your vga statement to vga = 317 or whatever it is for the eeepc. Here is a table of vga choices.

    640x480 800x600 1024x768 1280x1024
    256 0x301 0x303 0x305 0x307
    32k 0x310 0x313 0x316 0x319
    64k 0x311 0x314 0x317 0x31A
    16M 0x312 0x315 0x318 0x31B

    Just incase you dont know how to save in nano its control + o and then it will say "filename to save blah blah" and the enter to save.
