Description of problem:
I have just installed Linuz 7.1 on my new HP Pavillion desktop computer. The installation seems to go cleanly, but when i
restart the computer, the GUI will not work. I use the command "startx" and encounter the following errors: " (ii) i810:driver for
Intel i180 chipset: i810, i180-dc, i810e, i815 (ee) no devices detected", "fatal server error: no screens found", "xio: fatal IO
error 104 (connection reset by server) on xserver ":0.0" after zero requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining".
Also when i look inside /var/log/XFree86.0.log it says "(ww) cannot open APM". On the advise of your support people I have
tried to load the agpgart module, which was not loaded. However, after loading agpgart, and then running Xconfigurator, the I
get the same errors. Also when i do another "lsmod", it says that agpgart had been loaded but is unused (i don't know if that is
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install linux
2.start up computer
3.use the command "startx"
Actual Results: the error message, which i have reproduced above, is given
Expected Results: the GUI (X windows) should have started
Can you attach your /etc/X11/XF86Config file?
I cannot attach any logs or files, because the gui does not work, and so the computer cannot be attached to the internet. Also the
screen flashes constantly with warnings. However, I can tell that there is no directory /etc/X11/ and no file /etc/X11/XF86Config. on my
system when I log in as root.
Something's not right...I don't see how you could have X Windows installed but
not have an /etc/X11/XF86Config files.
Can you run 'rpm -q XFree86' and see if XFree86 was even installed?
