Adding extra resolutions that don’t nominally show up tends to be non-trivial. I can’t do it myself without surfing a lot for solutions - and even then there is no guarantee I’ll succeed. Of course what helps is to know (1) what openSUSE version a user is using, and (2) what graphic driver a user is using, and (3) what may be in the xorg.conf file, where (PasteBin.be is a good place to put that information) and ALL of that information is lacking on this thread.
will often tell one what resolutions are available with one’s current graphic driver in its current configuration.
… but I confess even if I had that information, I may not be able to help.

When I run “sax2” than nothing happen and I was lost my desktop screen. Then I restart and my desktop is back. I think “sax2” would broken on installation time.
So first step, I have completely updated my system. After restart, “sax2” is working. Second step, I checked in “sax2” and I found lot’s of screen resolution and 1152x864 resolution is also there. I selected and applied. Wow, resolution is set. Nothing to do.
I think my OpenSUSE 11.2 installation was not proper. I had seen two/three error on installation time but I ignored all. Although I have checked my ISO with Hash number and it is correct. I think my DVD drive is not proper working (I need to confirm this).
It’s my great experience in OpenSUSE that screen resolution is not headache and can set it easily. (I had done so many experiments with Ubuntu to get correct screen resolution.)
It’s always a good idea to update after install.
Remember to that a CD install is way less flush with installed packages than a DVD install. Though sax2 should have worked.
But if your install was in any way corrupt or lacking, post install Update usually does the trick.
… what I do, is keep a digital camera next to my PC when I do an install. If I see any weird error message, I immediately snap a pix of it. It is easy to recharge the camera’s batteries and easy to delete the pix afterward, so there is no cost of taking such a pix and knowing the error can save wasted time later.
On thing that is important (learned from experience) is to burn to an +R or -R CD/DVD and not to an RW. Also burn at the slowest speed. Even though one’s CD/DVD passes the various checks, not burning at a slow speed to the proper media can cause a poor installation.
