DrakX installation always goes well up to this point... then i have to
pick out a monitor.  Every combination of one of the generic monitor
types w/ the ATI All In Wonder card ends up w/ DrakX not finding the
damn screen.  anyone else have this problem?

1. "no screens found" error message when attempting to start X under Mandrake 7.0

Hi,

I am having a problem getting xwindows to start on my freshly
installed Linux Mandrake 7.0 installation.  I am using what I believe
to be supported Number 9 Revolution 3D 4 meg AGP card and a ViewSonic
E773.  For some reason, I get the following message when I run startx:

*** A configured device found, but display modes could not be
resolved.***

Fatal Server Error:
no screens found

I guess the short answer is that this means xwindows won't run.  Does
anyone know the long answer, why it won't run?

Linux Version 2.2.14-15mdksecure

2. mmap() and /dev/kvm

3. STARTX: "No Screens Found"/"Can't find Display"

4. Problem with Linux 1.1.53: unable to format floppy disks

5. GETSERVBYNAME()????????????????????"""""""""""""

6. Bootable Rescue Diskette

7. "No Screens Found" error with GeForce4 on Mandrake

8. Can I delete "core"?

9. find without the "find: cannot read dir /usr/lost+found: Permission denied"

10. """"""""My SoundBlast 16 pnp isn't up yet""""""""""""

11. Mandrake 7.0 - cannot find screen?!?

12. Mac "find" performs far better than Unix O(n^2) "find"

13. Error congiguring video card --"Cannot find server, cannot continue"
