Help with configuring x-windows display
I have reinstalled SuSE over Red Hat because of connectivity issues. The display in RedHat worked, although I could not get 3d acceleration, which is fine for what I plan to use Linux for (almost everything but games). The internet connection works in SuSE.
However, now when I try to use Sax2 to set up X Windows display settings, I can't get it to work at all. My display is a Nec Multisync 1760v. There are no specific Linux drivers online. I have the frequency settings etc and know how to put them in manually. I think the problem is with the video card itself
It is a ATI Radeon 9800 pro. Of course this does not show up at all on the options screen; next best thing =? I tried Vesa, as well as the generic (can't recall what the name listed was atm).
When I test the monitor/vid card choices, all I get is
/dev/fb0: no such device
no devices detected
The GRUB loader pops up with
[linux-bzimage,setup 0x1400 size 0x13391f]
Error 23: error while parsing number
Any ideas how to configure this so that I can at least get SOME display? I am trunning to run KDE.
Failing this, how do I remove GRUB from the MBR of hda so I can forget about linux until these issues get better?
