XFConfig problem..

Post by Kedar N. Patanka » Tue, 13 Oct 1998 04:00:00



Hi,

        I recently ordered a CheapBytes Redhat 5.1 CD. The installation went
smoothly. When I tried configuring X using the XConfigurator, it just core
dumped. Has anyone else faced any such problem with recent CheapBytes
Redhat 5.1 CDs??

        Thanx in advance,
        Kedar.

Which video card do you have? Which Xserver did you try? Where did XConfigurator
dumped? Did you try xf86config?

1. X Windows xfconfig problem

Help,

I'm using the xf86config program to set up an XF86Config file for X version
3.1.1. When it asks "do you want to run X -probeonly..." now I answer yes
and the screen flickers and it comes back with the error "grep failed,
cannot find clocks in server output." What does this mean. The file that
it outputs obviously doesn't work. I have a XF86Config file that I
made myself that gives me a dead screen when I start X but when I run
X -probeonly > /tmp/x.out 2&>1 I at least get a proper output to the file
x.out, I just don't know exactly how to plug those numbers into the config
file itself. I'd really like the xf86config program to do it for me.
I appreciate any help you can give.
