Hi, I am a newbie at Linux, and I installed RH7.0 publishers edition.
startx does bring up the initial GNOME window with the little icons to show
progress, but then the initial window disappears and the blue Redhat
background remains - no Gnome desktop ! I ran Xconfigurator which correctly
autodetected my video card with the correct horizontal and vertical values.
I set the memory to 16MB. My clock chip is an ICS 9248DF-39 which is not on
the list of support clock chips so I left the clockchip option at the
default "NONE (recommended)". I also made sure that the XF86Config path is
in the PATH environment variable. (export
PATH=$PATH:/etc/X11:usr/X11R6/lib/X11). But no success. Cntrl-Alt-+ has no
effect. I recently bought my PC which is a clone well respected in this
country, so I cannot believe the hardware is not supported, or is too old.
Please help with any ideas you may have.
Thanks, John Oosthuizen
