It sounds like XF86Setup is there but having problems.  What kind of
video card do you have?  Have you tried Xconfigurator instead?

Not anymore it's not - you just killed it, and it didn't delete that
message.  The message was correct up until you killed X, though. ;-)

1. help: XF86Setup virtual terminal error


I want to setup an X server on my notebook (first X setup for me). When I
configure with xf86config, the screen goes blank when I start X, with
CTRL_ALT_BS it shuts down, and restores display. Switching between
LCD->LCD/CRT->CRT->LCD won't help When I try to set it up using XF86Setup,
the screen goes blank after the 'Switching to graphics mode, this may take
a while' msg. When I shutdown with CTRL_ALT_BS, the display is restored,
and it says 'This program is running on a differen virtual terminal. Please
switch to the correct virtual terminal'. Does anyone know how I can switch
to/select the right terminal?

TIA, Randall
