LFS distro cant pick up my monitor. wont let Xorg config
for my senior project i decided to build my own linux system from scratch.
so naturally i downloaded the LFS live cd and it cant pick up my hardware... specefically my monitor.
it says its going to put the monitor in an 800 600 at 60hz but when i click the "okay" button it doesnt continue formating my screen
then i rebooted it into the virtual console before running the x window system and i type in
gtf 800 600 60
hoping that itll manually set my screen resoultion so i can continue booting the live cd but that still doesnt work and i still get the same error message... since i didnt print out the LFS book i cannot build my system without the lfs live cd up and running
did i miss a step or something?
if it helps im booting this off of a compaq evo n115 notebook
any help would be GREATLY appreciated
