    Installed both ubuntu 8.04 / debian 4.0.
    Neither one let me set or reconfigure the screen resolution.
    My monitor is an Orion 19" flat screen, model os-9f.
    Video cards used:
    SIS 630 integrated on mother board.
    Rage 128 Pro, Ultra 32m AGP, p/n 1025-14030-00062.
    Both run the monitor in 1024x768 or higher resolution in Win XP PRO.
    On both Linux installs, did not get the xserver screen resolution, screen.

    How can I reconfigure the screen resolution. i did try to use the configuration utility in Debian, with no luck, saving the new resolution settings.:confused:

    What makes this more frustrating, is that Ubuntu 8.04 worked good at one time, with the higher resolutions.

    This problem started after Ubuntu 8.04.1 / the last windows hotfix.
    The hot fix caused problems with Zone Alarm firewall in Win XP Pro.

    Also EX2Ifs_1_11 no longer worked, had to reinstall EX2Ifs_1_10c, which seems to work.

    Any help will make my day better.
