Gary, All I can think of (being unfamiliar with Gnome) is that the graphics card isn't up to displaying 1280x1024 at 24 bits. Or you haven't copied xorg.conf.new to /etc/X11/xorg.conf and it's picking up a stale xorg.conf. Try changing the following parameters: DefaultColorDepth 8 Depth 8 Modes "1024x768" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restart X/Gnome. If it works then add higher resolutions and colour depths until you achieve a satisfactory result. You can also try starting X bare: Xorg -config /etc/X11/xorg.conf Ctl+Alt+Backspace to kill it. That will determine whether it's an X problem or a Gnome problem. -- Frank echo "f r a n k @ e s p e r a n c e - l i n u x . c o . u k" | sed 's/ //g' --->PGP keyID: 0x10BD6F4B<--- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
