    Default change screen resolution before using "startx" command?

    Hi there

    is it possible to change the screen resolution which is used before typing "startx".

    I'm running BT3 (with presistend changes) on an EEE PC 901 and after using "startx" my screen resolution is 1024x600. But before I use the "startx" command the resolution seems to be "smaller" maybe 640x480 or something like that. I don't know.

    Now I would like to always have a resolution of 1024x600 after booting BT3. Is this possible? And can someone tell me how to do this?

    Default

    APPEND vga=0x317

    If your able to save changes:

    If you want to change your framebuffer setting which i THINK is what your talking about. you must edit "syslinux.cfg"

    now.. if you were referring to the console command line: or FrameBuffer
    modify
    Code:
     /boot/syslinux/syslinux.cfg
    add /or change the vga cheatcode if it isnt there to the APPEND line:

    Code:
    vga=0×317
    these are the hexadecimal and standard res settings please use numeral 0x not alpha Ox

    Code:
    # FRAMEBUFFER RESOLUTION SETTINGS
    # +————————————————-+
    # |---- 640×480 ---------800×600 --------1024×768 ------1280×1024
    # —-+——————————————–
    # 256 | 0×301=769----- 0×303=771----- 0×305=773 -------0×307=775
    # 32K | 0×310=784----- 0×313=787 -----0x316=790 ------0×319=793
    # 64K | 0×311=785 -----0×314=788 -----0×317=791 ------0×31A=794
    # 16M | 0×312=786 -----0×315=789----- 0×318=792 -----0×31B=795
    # +————————————————-+
    Good luck
