limited monitor resolution in fedora 16

I have a core i5 system with intel motherboard DH67CL. my monitor can support max 1366x768. First the max screen resolution was 800x600. i downloaded and installed intel display drivers from

http://fr2.rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/fed....fc18.src.html

after installing the drivers, i got 1024x768(4:3) as a bonus but still cant get 1366x768 (16:9).

any help would be appreciated

Re: limited monitor resolution in fedora 16

My problem is solved. the procedure i did was

After entering root

----------------
# xrandr -q
----------------
i got

Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
VGA1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 60.0*
800x600 60.3 56.2
848x480 60.0
640x480 59.9
HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
HDMI2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DP2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

then i entered my required resolution
-------------------
# gtf 1366 768 60
-------------------
this gave me output

# 1368x768 @ 60.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 47.70 kHz; pclk: 85.86 MHz
Modeline "1368x768_60.00" 85.86 1368 1440 1584 1800 768 769 772 795 -HSync +Vsync

copy the above line and paste with the following command
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
xrandr --newmode "1368x768_60.00" 85.86 1368 1440 1584 1800 768 769 772 795 -HSync +Vsync
------------------------------------------------------------------------------


then
-----------------------------------------
# xrandr --addmode VGA1 1368x768_60.00
-----------------------------------------

then

-------------------------------------------------
xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1368x768_60.00
-------------------------------------------------
