I've just installed RH 5.0 on my Win 95 PC. Everything works fine from the
main prompt, but when I try to start X Windows it flashes briefly and then
goes blank - leaving it for any amount of time results in nothing and the
HDD activity light is also dead. Pressing Ctrl-Alt-Del occasionally lets me
reboot in "blank mode", but not always. I have been forced to press the
Reset button, which is a Bad Thing, is it not?
I've tried running Xconfigurator, but to no avail. My video chip is a
Cirrus Logic 5446 (1 Mb) and my monitor a generic 14" - refresh rates et al
specified under Windows and in the manual, so I know those are right.
Basically, I think this is a display problem - which other config programs
or files can I run/modify to rectify this problem? Or is a new installation
on the cards?
Can anyone help a poor newbie?
