I am visually impaired, and have trouble seeing the 1680x1050 display resolutionthat my 23 inch monitor supports natively.

Is there a way to change the display resolution to a lower value?

either that or enable a screen reader or magnifier. I am really fussing trying to install Fedora in sc such a high screen resolution.

Also, why did Fedora take out the option to delete linux partitions from the anaconda installer in Fedora 18 and above? Now I have to boot into Windows and remove Fedora 18 partitions manually to install Fedora 19, and thats such a pain

Isn't ORca supported out of the box by Anaconda now?

To change the Anaconda resolution, use the resolution=<mode> boot parameter.

See the Installation Guide or even the wiki

Please report if it is not enough, we need feedback. Thanks.

Hi I am using Fedora 20 and I faced somewhat similar problem when the monitor screen turned black and showed: "Can not display this Video Mode". I read somewhere that i should write "nomodeset=vesa resolution="1024x768"" in the boot parameters to help that. OK I got the OS installed but as i ran it afterwards, it gave the same error and above boot parameters didnt do the job.

Any help in this regard will be appreciated.
