Posted by davehatems on Oct. 19 2007,14:56I've tried to edit .xserverrc through beaver and have been unsuccessful. yes, i am using emelfm.
But i need to know what needs to be edited in 'exec /usr/bin/X11...'
I know I have to copy,rename, and edit XF86Config-4_vesa afterwards.
But I can't seem to edit the .xserverrc the correct way.
Can anyone recommend what I should edit in this line. I'm sure it's simple, but I can't grasp it for some reason.

exec /usr/X11R6/bin/XFree86 -nolisten tcp

I could've sworn that's what I had edited it to in the beginning.
When I run xsetup.sh, does that overwrite my .xserverrc?
I think that's where I lost it.
ok, when i get back to editing for the resolution, should I just edit the resolution to 1440x900 only, or should I add 1440x900 to the rest of the resolutions?
Posted by davehatems on Oct. 19 2007,19:53also , is there a solid way to edit the config file to make sure it gets done the right time, or do i have to re-edit to get it right?

Posted by davehatems on Oct. 19 2007,20:14thanks, I'll try it again tonight.
Posted by davehatems on Oct. 20 2007,12:35Ok, i edited the xserverrc, no problem. I do not have a '/usr/X11 to copy the XF86Config-4_vesa to. I only have /usr/X11RC - do i copy it there or to the /bin/X11?
I know I have to rename it by deleting _vesa.
When I restart Window Manager, I get no difference.
So i looked for 'pstree' and still I am in xvesa.
What am I doing wrong?
