Went back into sax2 and changed the monitor to VESA
800x600x60 and that worked ... thanks!

Repair had fixed the NIC card problem so I am now downloading
all of the recommended updates ... hopefully they don't break
anything!

Next will come my son's PC, after that my wife's, and if all
has gone well with them ... and I see some serious stability
for 9.1 on notebooks I will update my 9.0 home+work notebook
as well.

In Sax2 define the frequencies by hand...
If you got the frequencies...


In one case I had to reinstall windows with drivers to figure out what frequencies the silly monitor worked..

The second time, I just choose from the standard resolutions/frequecies
starting with the lost (640x480@60) and took the last one that worked...

I have tried to Repair the problems with the Suse 9.1
installation (upgrade) on my daughter's PC to no avail.

Repair fixed some things it said were broken but I cannot
seem to get at the display problem. All text is displayed
with a huge font (like 72 or something) so I cannot get
into anything to edit (e.g. sax2 or the like because I
cannot read menu options, etc.)

I tried sax2 -l from a Failsafe boot but once in Sax I do
not know how to resolve the problem since the old US Logic
VM-3000 monitor is unknown to Suse 9.1 (and appears to be
unknown to the Internet via Google).

Is Sax where I should be or does this sound like a KDE 3.2
settings problem uneffected by Sax?

Thanks! doc
