Help! I have just installed Slackware 3.5 to replace Slackware 3.0,
and have carried over any old configuration files that might help...
However, I cannot get X running!
I have an S3 Virge (c325) video card with 2MB. It worked with Slackware
3.0, with the file XF86_S3V. I copied the old XF86_S3V and XF86Config
into /tmp of the new install, just in case.
Upon providing information as shown in the old config file to the
xf86config program, I attempted to do X -probeonly, getting the
following output without X starting:
(**) S3V: Unknown RAMDAC type "s3gendac"
*** A configured device found, but display modes could not be
Fatal server error:
no screens found
_X11TransSocketUNIXConnect: Can't connect: errno= 111 giving up.
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111):
unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3):
I also tried just copying the old XF86Config and XF86_S3V files to the
appropriate places in the new installation, with a symlink between
XF86_S3V and X, and once again tried X -probeonly, but got the same
"unknown RAMDAC type 's3gendac'" message. Anyone have any idea what is
going on here???
Any advice would be helpful, I'm at my wits' end :(
Thanks in advance,
(to reply, remove the obvious)
