Description of problem:
From Redhat Service Request 216016
XWindows not running
As summary of what we did: You changed monitors to a new one wherein the
systemwas able to probe but the same problem arose. This would lead us to
believe that the S3 Trio might be the one creating the problem. At this point
we are suspecting that it might be a bug with the video card itself. Bugzilla
the best solution. (Note: I increased the memory of my machine from 32 to 64
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. enter startx
3. get the error every time (XWindows not running)
Actual Results: Get error every time
Expected Results: program should run - but being a first user I've never seen
the expected results.
First Monitor selected was a Proview 768M and I selected Proview 770 on the
installation list because that looked like the closest one. Next monitor I
tried was a Compaq MV940 Color Monitor with the same results, thus when
troubleshooting with the RedHat tech support group this lead us to believe the
problem lies with the S3 video card.
Oh, I need to be clear that I actually had another monitor that I connected to
the system and it was the Compaq 940MV Color Monitor, which I just happened to
have on another computer in my home.
Are you getting an error with X starting during the installation process or
afterwards? If afterwards, could you please attach /etc/X11/XF86Config and
