I'm trying to set up "X" windows from the 2.2.7 CD set.
I run /stand/sysinstall ... selecting the only procedure which doesn't
just hang my machine (266 MHz Pentium with 64 Mbytes RAM, generic SVGA
display driven with 4 Mbytes graphics card), that is the middle one of
the three offered which leads you through a sequence of shell-script
based questions and answers about sync frequencies etc.
All that works fine, but the program doesn't seem to write the resulting
XF86Config file anywhere the system can find it ... and I can't find it
either ... just a couple of samples in the /usr/X1186/lib/X11/
directory. Consequently, when I run "xstart" with either twm, fvwm2 or
fvwm95 what I get is a display which looks fine, apart from being very
magnified, as if the system thinks I can only support 320 X 200 pixels,
where the machine ordinarily works not-too-bad on 1024 X 768, and very
pleasingly on 800 X 600.
I can probably hack my way through building an XF86Config file the hard
way, but suspect I'm doing something stupid in the way that I'm
approaching it with the /stand/sysinstall route. Can anyone suggest what
the problem might be??
With thanks for help and encouragement received thus far ....
