no screens found...config-xfree86 problem
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem: So Installed redhat 9.0 on my old compaq
prosignia 300 (75mghz) 65mb of simm ram, Cirrus logic Gd5424 graphic
chip, and a 4 gb scsi hard drive. The installation was great no big
problems I had to enter a few things in order for it to work and here
is what I am suppost to type on a boot
Boot: linux text mem=exactmap mem=640K@O mem=64M@1M expert
so this is what I typed and it all worked fine. when I booted it for
the first time I had no problems. When I got to the login it was in
the "virtual command center thing" and I sected the graphical login
(no big deal) so I logged in and typed "startX" well then I got a
error from xfree86 saying "fatal error: no screens found" I
tried "redhat-config-xfree86 --set-driver=cirrus, didn't work. tried
redhat-config-xfree86 didn't work other than I got "no screens found"
I am a newbee and don't know much but I am on a learning spree. So
help me out here..please.
