Yes, sax2 will simplify things. Where did you set the screen size? Does the
screen flicker a bit before reverting back to 1280x1024? Maybe it fails to
set 1024x768 at the start and then moves downwards to alternatives in
If you don't use sax2 (which is just a front-end to editing XF86Config), try
editing the file yourself (make a backup first!):
The path is: /etc/X11/XF86Config
The relevant section will look something like this:
Modes "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Hope it helps,
