    Frequency problem!

    I have some problems setting the frequency of my video card/screen in knoppix. I have a voodoo3 and samsung screen. I only get 60Hz! How do I change it? I already tried the knoppix vfreq=60 or similar at the start but didnt work... I already installed knoppix onto HD, how do I fix it there? In the x86config file?? thx for your help!

    You could put the necessary boot option ( xvrefresh=?? ) in your /etc/lilo.conf file append line ie:
    append="hda=scsi hdb=scsi hdc=scsi hdd=scsi hde=scsi hdf=scsi hdg=scsi hdh=scsi apm=power-off nomce xvrefresh=72"
    and then re-run lilo with /sbin/lilo -v

    Or another way would be to boot to your CD and play with the boot options (cheat codes, press F2 at startup or read the cheatcodes.txt file on your cd). Once you have your video working like you want it mount your hard drive read-write rename your old XF86Config-4 file just in case and copy the new file into /etc/X11 on your hard drive.
