I just reinstalled OpenSuse 10.3
after Grub resulted in 99 99 99 .. or Error 21
after yesterday's update went wrong.

Yast Sax2 X11 Configuration: Monitor:
Card and Monitor Properties:
Card: NVidia GeForce 6150
Monitor: ACR ACER AL2216W
Properties: Resolution: 1680x1050 (WSXGA+)
Colors: 16.7 Mio. (24 bit)
(In reality this monitor like most big LCD
now on the market only supports 16 bit,
badly dithering to 24 bits: a marketing scam
that should be met with a lucrative class action
law suit, but i'm not in the USA).

I am using the default open source driver,
but the resolution currently in use is smaller
then the one correctly recognised and stated by Yast.
How can i correct this ?

Kind regards Philippe
