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 ). Did you try that?
