Resolution problems

I have the resolutions in XF86Config and I've tried using ctrl + alt +
[+/-].  It will only allow 2 resolutions.  I have several in the XF86Config
file.  I haven't checked the log file you mentioned but I will do so.
Actually, as I am new to FreeBSD (UNIX altogether) I didn't realize it

Thanks Fabian,

How do you try to change the resolution?
Do you just start xfree86 and hit [ctrl] [alt] [+] or have you modified

Any error messages in /var/log/XFree86.0.log?
