Any help on the following problem is greatly appreciated.
I installed Slackware v1.1.1 on a 486DX PC with an NCR77C22E graphic
board. In Xconfig, the dotclock rates are taken from specifications
came with the graphic board. The monitor is a CTX5468NI and the
parameters for modes in Xconfig are taken from modeDB.txt. The
system worked fine after 'startx' until I used [ctrl-alt-backspace].
After I did this the screen showed an unrecognizable mess. I could
still enter commands from the keyboard, but it was impossible to
figure out what had been typed from the screen. After I typed 'startx'
again, the system then worked fine until I tried again to leave
the X window. I tried to use 'kill fvwm' to leave, but I also ended
up facing an unrecognizable screen.
After rebooting the system, I used 'script' to creat a file before
typing 'startx.' Then I used [ctrl-alt-backspace] and [ctrl-D]
and rebooted the system. The error message I found in the file
is something like "IO fatal error 32 (broken pipe)." I would like
to learn to fix this problem.
I also installed Slackware v1.1.1 using the same set of floppy disks
on another 486DX PC with an AVIEW2E graphic board and a MAG15 monitor.
In that case I did not have any problem to leave the X window.
Thank you for reading this message.
