Shutting down X11 without distortion - How ?

Shutting down X11 without distortion - How ?

Post by Helmut Jaraus » Thu, 17 Jul 1997 04:00:00

please help!

I have managed that X11 is running well (S3-chip card plus a multiscan monitor).
But when I shutdown the X-server it sometimes (often) leaves the screen
distorted (lost sync). Switching the montior's power off/on solves the
problem, but isn't there a soft reset?

Thank for any hints,

1. shutting down X11 port 6000

Greetings group

    For countless months I have attempted to shut down port 6000. I have
followed the advice of USENET archives and Google searches by putting
-nolisten tcp in just about every suggestable file
(/etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config, Xservers, et al). Nothing seems to work. I am
running Red Hat 7.2 but this has been going on since my first red Hat
install of 5.2. Does ANYBODY know how to shut this damn thing down? Any
and all help is appreciated.
