I just got X-windows running under linux, but the only problem so
far is the following:
When I exit a window manager, i.e. fvwm, I expect to return to the
text screen from which I had invoked startx, the script to run X-windows.
However, my screen becomes distorted with a flickering green pseudo-rectangle
and I can never returned to the text screen mode (console).
I need to reboot in order to have the system running again.
I hope somebody can help me out. My computer consists of the
AST Advantage Plus 486dx2-66
16 MB RAM
ATI Mach 32 chipset on a local bus
17" Panasonic 1795E (PanaSync) which complies with VESA standards
I heard from a friend that ATI might cause some problems. Is that
true, and if so, what sort of problems? If not , what can be causing my
problem of not being able to return to text mode after exiting X-windows.
Any remedies or utility to fix this ?
