    Default unable to see bottom of add/remove programs?


    hi, im running opensuse v11.0, when i go to add a program the box which
    i have to press to agree to install is below the bottom line of my
    screen and therefore i cannot add programs this way, i have resized my
    monitor res. but still no luck, im using a toshiba equium with 1280x800
    screen. any help would be great.

    Many thanks.

    I haven't seen the installation screen yet. If it is the similar to
    11.0's, I'd try to include the option vga=0xNNN in the boot line, where
    NNN equals:

    317 (792 decimal) = 1024 x 768 x 24-bit (64k) colors;
    316 (791 decimal) = 1024 x 768 x 16-bit (32k) colors;

    as the installer may be trying to use 1280 x 1024 and your LCD monitor
    is not resizing it.

    Google for "linux vga boot options" and you'll find many other
    options.

    If nothing works, try vga=normal.

    I may be complicating this unnecessarily. At the boot screen you can
    change resolution by pressing F3 (see 'Installation/11.1 DVD Install -
    openSUSE' (http://en.opensuse.org/Installation/11.1_DVD_Install) ). Did
    you try that?
