first, you got an answer less than one hour after your original
post…an individual obviously USED the forum search function and
gave you two links to look at–what was the result of reading those
here is your posting yesterday AND the answer:
you could help yourself by crafting a more descriptive subject/title
than the one you used here (thereby attracting the attention of those
who might want to help with a VIDEO problem–just saying “can anyone
help me out” tells NOTHING about what you need help with)…i’d
probably go with something like: Matrox stuck at 800x600
then, when you post give info like: operating system version, and
which desktop you are running (KDE3, KDE4, Gnome, what? most here do
not like to GUESS what you are running…)
you say you “try for 1024*768” but not how you tried?
did you ‘try’ in YaST > Hardware > Graphic Card and Monitor?
or some other way??
in YaST, are both the monitor and graphics card correctly identified?
if they are not, what happens if you manually pick the correct hardware?
and, if it is really a server, why would you even need a gui display?
Thanks for a detailed answer. so according to you if its a server then it can not run in GUI Mode. so it means Opensuse 11.1 is not for server purpose just single machine. so i’ll stick to my Windows Server. because i have two weeks for File server deployment. and it can be done couple of hrs in windows.
Thanks againg for saving my time

That is not correct. You misinterpreted what Andy said. You can run a server
with a GUI; however, most people choose not to as it is a waste of resources. I
have run SuSE and openSUSE on my server since version 6.4. There are two
advantages - my main server only has 128 MB RAM, and it usually is not rebooted
more than 3 or 4 times a year. I doubt that your Windows Server does that well.
Another thing is that I almost never do anything on my server from the console -
I ssh into it. If you make the connection with an ‘ssh -X hostname’ login, you
can run an X server on your remote host and have whatever resolution you have
there. I don’t know the details, but there are open-source X implementations for
As was noted earlier, you need to be a lot more careful about the subject line
of your postings. Most people just skip generic entries.
enjoy your nose ring, Redmond hitched TROLL spreading FUD!!
I was off on weekend. well i 've posted before but noone replied. so i had that TITLE. anyways, as i’ve told before i am a windoes and cisco person. i last week i gave this idea to my management to use opensuse as a cost reduction. but it seems it not a 2 weeks job because i need a new file, print and mail server for our new location. Anyways i’ll keep on learning it until i can become expert. (the problem is still there and no useful suggestion).
Thanks guys for support and undrtstanding
