Newbie alert! Can't get StartX to work!
Ok I'm completely new to Linux... Tried installing Mandrake - no luck, installer hangs up, hardware incompatiblity apparently.
Tried installing Red Hat - ok, it installs but no GUI! Try typing StartX but it tells me:
Using config file: "/etc/X11/XF86Config"
VESA(0) No matching modes
Screen(s) found, but none have usable configuration
Fatal server error:
no screens found
Ok so I try running in root Xf86config - it asks me what monitor type I have - none match so I try the most conservative option then it asks for my video chipset etc- again it's not on the list (I have a SiS 740), fill in the rest of the details as best I can but StartX is still not working - any ideas?
