Flickering Screen Problem on RHL 9
I really dont know d cause of this but I suspect my NVidia GeForce MX400 card.
It used to worked fine on d same linux box. I'd noticed this that after like every 5 days usage, it starts to flick.......then I will reinstall linux.
It also works 4 a few days and started flickerin again. The reason I 'd 2 instal is cause am running by BSc project (network simulation) on it. So, I couldnt wait 4 solution from forums online.
But, right now, am ready to sit down wit it.
I ll appreciate any ideas as to how to solve this issue. FYI, if I go 2 any shell (CTRL+SHIFT + F[1-6]). They also flickers. Dunno.
I guess d first soln is 2 change runlevel 2 3........however, grub is provin difficult to change runlevel to 3.
I cant enter GUI since XServer will not start. It flickers just before displayin d GUI login page. It neva displays d GUI page. It flicker showing d root@localhost console.
ll also appreciate any ideas.

any particular reason why you are using such an old version of Red Hat? Sometimes updates fix your problemsPut your hand in an oven for a minute and it will be like an hour, sit beside a beautiful woman for an hour and it will be like a minute, that is relativity. --Albert Einstein
