Fedora 11 and xorg.conf

by on Sep.12, 2009, under Fedora, Linux

If you install Fedora 11 and find that your X11 display is less than ideal (as in it won’t do better than 800×600) run:

Xorg -configure :1

as root to create a new default in /root.

Run ‘X -config /root/’ to test the new config. If the display sizes properly, copy it to /etc/X11 and overwrite the existing xorg.conf. This was the only fix I needed in do in order to get a clean install of Fedora 11 going.
