monitor/video card compatibility
This is my second linux install ever, first one that I am doing for my personal use. Decided to choose Fedora Core 6.
PC I am using is a Compaq D51S which is a P4 2.4ghz 256ghz device running an on board video card: Intel Extreme Graphics (integrated with Intel 845G chipset)
Montior I am using is a Westinghouse 32" TV/LCD screen witha VGA input. running 800x600 resolution
I first installed windows XP pro on the hard drive and everytinhg loaded fine. screen looked good. I had to update a few NIC card drivers, and saw a few graphics and video chip set drivers so i updated those as well. than i popped in the FC6 disk and began the install. everything went through fine, no errors at all
I can load the CLI with no problem, but when i type STARTX the screen flashes a few times an comes up with an error similar to:
could not start x server
screens found but none that will work
no screens found on card 0
no screens found on monitor 0
i am not home so I do not have the exact error message
I read a few forums last nite and changed the video driver to vesa, and added in a device "screen" section to the /etc/X11/x11org.conf file.
I am still not able to get this to load.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
