I'm looking for help with my X I can't get it to work and honestly I don't know where I'm going wrong.
I've been using a few books to help me out and I seem to be knocking my head against the wall.

I've enclosed a copy of my XF86Config file which I've edited myself with vi and I was wondering if
someone could look it over and give suggestions.

Thanks alot in advance,
Rich Welch

<config file deleted for readability>

Rich,,

May I suggest you give us some idea of what problems you are having ? Post an
X error log, or something - Just handing out a config file and asking for it
to be given the once-over is tantamount the old 'needle in a haystack' problem.

i scanned through it and concluded i can't help you...

you didn't seem to include any hardware specifications (video card,
monitor, mouse -ps/2, serial, etc, etc, etc).

if i've just zipped through it too fast i apologize...

The fact that these entries say "640x400" instead of "640x480" would
definitely cause a problem.  Try changing them and see what happens.

Considering these entries are commented out, changing them shouldn't really
affect anything at all..

I would, however, reccomend uncommenting some of the ModeLine entries, as
without any of thses defined, you will certainly have a hard time getting
the X server to display anything, let alone start up.

----->>>XF86Config Help Needed Here's a Copy of<<<------

Post by Jason Fl » Thu, 15 Feb 1996 04:00:00



I am new to this so I may not be of much help.

I had this problem the other day with X. If your problem
is that you don't connect to the monitor server then what
you can try is to just load all *ing servers that you can
off of the X pack
and try diffrent ones until you get it right. This worked for me.
Oh if your editing the XF86Config by hand don't bother. Try
just running

xf86config (the case is correct don't worry)

Let me know if this helps.

1. LILO help <><><><><><>

I just installed RH6 on a box that only had a 50MB DOS partition to
begin with.
During the RH install, I used Disk Druid to set up additional
partitions as follows:
/       ~1 GB
swap    ~40 MB
/usr    ~500 MB
/boot   ~10 MB

When prompted, I told it to install LILO into the "/boot" partition.

Upon restarting the system after the install, it booted into DOS again
from my origional active DOS partition.

I tried booting from the emergency rescue disk that I was prompted to
create during the install, but it gives me an error "0x10" and stops.

I can boot using the RH "boot.img" boot disk, hitting F4, and then
inserting the "rescue.img" disk made from dosutils on the RH CD, but I
have no idea what to do from there.

I want to make the thing boot with LILO and ask whether to start DOS or
boot Linux (as default). I realize now that I probably shoud've just
told it to install LILO into the MBR.

Please tell me there is an easy/painless way to get LILO to do this
without re-installing totally.

Please respond via Email to:  jack972 [<at>] netzero [<dot>] net

Many thanks!
