YAXQ (Yet Another X-windows Question)

Post by RTM van Di » Wed, 14 May 1997 04:00:00


I have some troubles with the config van X11R6.
After some unsuccessfull tries with another Gfx (spea video 7) card I
have swapped this card for a "normal" diamond Gfx card with an S3
chipset. After starting the X daemon with startx the hd starts to spin
and the screen blanks........ after several minutes .... waiting and
waiting.... coffee turns cold.... I have pressed ctrl-alt-del, the
screen turns in to the "normal" xwindows screen and the harddisk is
spinning again .... only this is the shutdown procedure...

I've tried differend settings but no succes so-far...

Any suggestions?????

1. X-windows in Windows 95 and type writers in X-windows


I have 3 questions about X-windows:

Is there a good graphical bases typewriter (not editor) in which
i can write and layout text in x-windows, without using a bunch
of codes as in e.g. latech.

Is it possible to make a telnet like connection in a MS windows
based PC to a unix machine which is capable to run the X-windows
system. So i could use for example Xmaple when I am sitting home
where i dont have unix, but I do have a fast pc and internet.

Is there a special X-windows newsgroup?

Please e-mail me because i cant read the newsgroups so often.
