Red Hat Well, here on OSNews, there has been plenty of discussion about Red Hat 8, what it is, what it isn't, the Bluecurve look and many other features and issues. I ordered Red Hat 8 Personal Edition and decided to see how close Red Hat 8 may be to a distribution that Joe and Jane User could install and use.

I had a problem with my resolution too but I fixed it. RedHat only wanted to use 75 hertz at 1154 which I wanted to run 70 hertz because my 75 hertz just doesn't fit on my screen right... just a little bit of black all the way around no matter if I change my monitor settings. Which is what it did in Redhat 7.3 too but in that one I just copied over the modeline from xconfig file to the xconfig-4 file under dmms part of monitor. But I they didn't have mode lines, I did read the last article on Redhat here so I used the web site talked about to make a modeline, ok did that but nothing. So I got pissed and formatted installed Mandrake, copied the xconfig files to floppy, and formatted back to Redhat. Which then I copied the mode line over but nothing didn't work... Then looking at Mandrakes xconfig file I noticed that there was no dmms part under the monitor section... So I deleted that and added the modeline, saved it and rebooted... Everything seem to work then.
