How do I increase screen resolution up to 1024x768 on a SUSE 10 virtual machine?

APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 8 for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop 7 for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop 6 for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop 5 for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop 4 for Mac
  • Parallels Desktop for Windows & Linux

Resolution

In the virtual machine open Terminal or any other application for running shell commands and perform the following steps:
  1. Find the grub menu.lst boot loader file: /boot/grub/menu.lst (e.g. using this command: "find / | grep menu.lst")

  2. In the grub boot loader configuration file, change the VGA setting:

    kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda2 vga=0x0317 selinux=0 resume=/dev/hda1 splash=silent showopts

  3. Start xmode utility with resolution and frequency parameters to receive parameters for the record in /etc/X11/xorg.conf configuration file:

    # xmode -x 1024 -y 768 -r 80

  4. For instance, you may receive:

    Modeline "1024x768" 86.18 1024 1088 1200 1376 768 769 772 803

  5. Add the record you received from xmode into the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. For instance, the record will be:

    Modeline "1024x768" 86.18 1024 1088 1200 1376 768 769 772 803

  6. Put comment signs in the beginnings of all the strings for 800x600 screen resolution, for instance:

    #Modeline "800x600" 40.0 800 840 968 1056 600 601 605 628 +hsync +vsync
    #Modeline "800x600" 36.88 800 832 912 1024 600 601 604 621 +hsync +vsync

  7. Restart the guest OS.
