    Post New Forum

    I was wandering if it would be worth adding a forum based on general computing, and if so how do we pursuade Moon to give us a new forum.

    My reasoning behind this goes as follows.

    If been trying to find a computing forum, which covers a board range of topics, with an atmosphere I like, and well I've failed.

    From reading these boards it is pretty clear there are people who know what there talking about, and will help you with what may sound like stupid question without being patronising.

    I don't want to take the focus off MP3 cars here, and turn this into a site for computer help, as that would kill it.

    I think it's great to have a group of people who's main interestes are all the same, cars, computers & music. BTW anyone not interested in those three things.

    However I realise, due to the nature of building custom computer setups, most of the people on this board are pretty bright. I foreone would like to take advantage of that, with dumb questions like how do you change the screen resoultion in Redhat after iit's installed.

    Anyway I've rambled on way too much, so has anyone else got any idea's / comments on this.

    my previous project, watercooling cpus got me into this site: www.procooling.com . I use them for advice on what to buy now...i used to be waaay into it but its alot easier to just ask as there is always a general consensus. check out the chat and ask your question and they should be able to help you if we cant.

    As I remember, to change the screen resoultion in Linux, you need to edit the X86CONFIG file in /ETC/X11/ directory. the file should contain all the resolutions your hardware was tested to support during your initial system configuration. You will need to move the order in which the resolutions are listed or add the resolution that you want. This is all from memory as the last time I was in there was about six months ago. Use the MAN pages for help.
    Still workin' on it.

    Thanks Guys

    Another idea for a new forum, might be electronic circuits. Just an idea, as I seem to be sticking them all over the place.

    Also what about a fourm for Newbies, not that I want to segragate them, but it might be eaiser for Newbies to find what they want if there is a fourm aimmed at common problems questions.

    A well-maintained FAQ will take care of that. I propose that every time you get sick of someone asking the same question over and over, go and update the FAQ at http://www.mp3car.com/usersites/bgoodman/faq . Then every time after that someone posts that question, you can just write RTFF.
