    Unhappy resolution


    Ok, I am trying to connect to a network using linuxconf. The only problem is i can't see the bottom of the window where it is supposed to say Act/Changes. Its like the screen is not big enough. I checked the redhat site and it says to press Ctrl+Alt+the + key on the keypad, but that does nothing. I am pretty much stuck now. Thanks in advance.

    Do you have any other problems with the monitor. Ie can you always see the bottom of the screen, except linuxconf?

    You could also try using ssh from another machine. Something like SecurCRT will let you pick the window size.
    Is it just me or is it cold in here?

    To move a window around when you can't reach the toolbar at the top, hold the ALT key, left-click and hold somewhere in the window and then move the window around.

    This works in KDE and Gnome I believe.

    Good luck! You can also use the Tab key to move between fields (but I'm sure you knew that. . .)

    It seems that the only thing i can't see is the linuxconf. I successfully connected to the network by using the netconfig, so that is not a problem anymore. I have not used the xwindows that much because all i really needed was a terminal. All the other windows seem to display fine . Thanks for your help though.
