Now that we have a plethora of blades and workstations, I thought it would be wise to put some support articles up on the blog. The first article that I thought would be handy is the changing of the screen resolution. To do this you need to use the fbconfig tool.

$fbconfig -res /?

This command will show you all of the available resolutions and more importantly, which ones are compatible with screen+card. For the 19″ flat panel monitors, 1280×1024x60 with a color depth of 24bit is the best resolution.

$fbconfig -res 1280x1024x60
$fbconfig -defaultdepth 24

To get help using fbconfig, run:

$fbconfig -help
