APPLIES TO:
  • Parallels Desktop 3 for Mac Standard Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 2.x for Mac Standard Edition

Resolution

In SUSE 10 guest OS screen resolution is changed in a way different from other Linux guest OSes.
To change guest OS screen resolution in SUSE 10 to 1024x768:
1. In the config file for grub menu.lst boot loader change the VGA setting:

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

2. Start xmode utility with resolution and frequency parameters, to receive parameters for the record in xorg.conf configuration file:

xmode -x 1024 -y 768 -r 80

For instance, you may receive:
Modeline "1024x768" 86.18 1024 1088 1200 1376 768 769 772 803

3. Add the record you received from xmode into xorg.conf file.
For the instance from the previous list item the record will be:
Modeline "1024x768" 86.18 1024 1088 1200 1376 768 769 772 803

4. 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

5. Restart the guest OS.
