    Default VMWare Server Screen Resolution error

    I'm running openSUSE 11 and VMWare server v1.0.7 build-108231.

    When I configure my XP virtual machines screen resolution and click on the VMWare server 'Full Screen' button I get the following error:

    Unable to fing an appropriate host video mode. Adding the guest mode to the 'display' subsection of the 'screen' section of your /etc/X11/XF86Config and restarting X is likely to help.

    Failed to switch to full screen SVGA mode.

    I'm new to Linux and am not sure how I do that?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi, thanks for the reply. Yes I've installed the vmware tools. I'm trying to use a resolution of 1400 x 1050 in my virtual machine.

    All help greatly appreciated.
