I was wondering if some kind soul could help me out with a problem that
I've been having.
First, I upgraded my kernel from 2.4.3 to 2.4.7. That went smoothly,
except for the fact that X seemed not to like the upgrade. It almost
looked like my horz & vert timings were off. When I did a
<ctrl><alt>[<+><->], the screen would look normal again, but I would
have a virtual desktop. So, any ideas on whats going on here?
I decided to upgrade X to 4.1.0 to try to fix the problem. But I ran
into some trouble. X started just fine, but gnome would not. There was
only one term window in the upper-left hand corner that could not be
moved. Previously, X would not start at all. It complained that it
could not find the libncurses.so.4 shared library. So - I just made a
symlink to libncurses.so.5. (yeah, yeah - I know - pretty shady, but it
got me farther than before, so I left it.) I think there may also be
some kind of complication with xterm.
Anywho - being a good little boy, I made backups of the old kernel and
my old X files. So - I restored them and am now back at kernel 2.4.3
and X windows 3.whatever....
Can someone shed some light on the situation. If you need any more info
- I'll be here.
