i had 1600x1200 screen resolution with f10 and the following xorg.conf:




Section
"ServerLayout"

        Identifier     "X.org
Configured"

        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0
0

        InputDevice    "Mouse0"
"CorePointer"

        InputDevice    "Keyboard0"
"CoreKeyboard"

EndSection


Section "Monitor"
        #DisplaySize      320   240     # mm
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "DEL"
        ModelName    "DELL M782"
        HorizSync    30.0 - 85.0
        VertRefresh  50.0 - 160.0
        Option      "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Card0"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     1
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     4
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     8
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     15
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes     "1600x1200" "1280x1024" "1024x768"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "X.org Configured"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

but, using this in f11 gives at best 1280x1028.

anybody know what gives?

thanks

I think this will work for you :

1. run system-config-display
2. Enter root password when prompted
3. Go to 'Hardware' tab.
4. In monitor type section - click configure
5. Now select LCD/CRT and then appropriate resolution.

If you dont have 'system-config-display' (as it was in my case), install it with
yum install system-config-display
