X won't start (I read the HOWTO!)

Post by Thor Legvo » Tue, 25 Jun 1996 04:00:00

Configured Drivers:
VGA256 etc etc (my card - a Tseng ET3000 - is listed here)
(Using VT number 7)

Xconfig: <path is fine>

Fatal server error:
There is no defined dot-clock matching mode "1024x768"

xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unexpected signal 13

In /usr/X386/lib/X11/Xconfig is configured several resolutions,
I've read the HOWTO and tried getting it to run at only
basic VGA/EGA resolution, but always get the same error.

I'm trying to test out "Mini-linux", a 5 floppy set
with complete kernel, networking and X windows.  It
works except for X....

Kernel version 1.0.9, VLB 486DX, 8MB core, IDE disk,
Linux dist on H: booting with root on C:, umssdod fs.

Please email replies.

1. help needed: AWE32 PNP won't work - kernel won't compile - gurus read this!

Hello all,

I went through the Sound howto files, I tried to make the AWE32 PNP
work via the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules (auto detect for IRQ 5 DMA1 and 5)
I tried to compile my kernel for the AWE32 PNP sound blaster but the
message I receive while compiling is:
sb_common.c:21: #error You will need to configure the sound driver
sb_common.c:266: warning: `sb16_set_mpu_port' defined but not used
make[2]: *** [sb_common.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [sub_dirs] Error 2
make: *** [linuxsubdirs] Error 2

Any suggestions/solutions. There seems to be no way of dactivating
the mpu interface with the make config option. Nor I do not now how to
enable it or disable it on the soundcard.

Thanks for your  replies!!!!!!!!
