To change the VGA card display resolution in RHEL5

Suppose your graphics card support 1024x768 resolution then you can change it using the following command.

"xrandr -s 1024x768"

If you don't have "1024x768" in that “xrandr” output, try below one this might be help to get “1024x768”.

In “/etc/X11/xorg.conf” file just check the entries

            SubSection "Display"
                        Viewport  0 0
                        Depth     24
                        Modes "1024x768"

Check the entry “Modes”. If it is not present just add this line and check.
