I think I broke it (No GUI)
So, trying to get things set up on a new Mandriva install. Have been trying to set up dual monitors, but haven't been able to get the driver installed. Anyway, that is a different thread.
Currently I changed a setting to enable 3D and now all I get is the text interface, after I get Fatal Error: No monitor found (or something like that).
I tried running XFdrake, and making changes there, but every time I click test the screen goes rainbow with a "Are these settings correct" dialog. I have tried both Yes and No but both cause me to lose all display and have to reboot.
I did try xorg.conf file, but didn't see any think that looked like it pertained to 3D.
Any help is much appreciated. I could just reinstall, but I am trying to learn, and a big step in learning is figuring out what you did wrong

How/where did you change the settings "to enable 3D"?
Post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf please, let's have a look. Which video card do you have?

It was under computer management>displays>Options (or something along, going from memory )
Here is what xorg.conf shows:
Section "ServerFlags" Option "DontZap" "False" AllowMouseOpenFail EndSection Section "Module" Load "v4l" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "monitor1" VendorName "Plug'n Play" ModelName "FHX2300" HorizSync 31-83 VertRefresh 56-76 ModeLine "1920x1080" 148.5 1920 2008 2052 2200 1080 1084 1089 1125 +hsync +vsync ModeLine "768x576 50.00 768 832 846 100 576 590 595 630 ModeLine "768x576" 63.07 768 800 690 1024 576 578 590 616 EndSection Section "Device" Identifier "device1" BoardName "ATI Radeon HD 2000 And later (radeonhd/fglrx)" Driver "radeonhd" Option "DPMS" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "screen1" Device "device1" Monitor "monitor1" EndSection Section "ServerLayout" Identifier "layout1" Screen "screen1" EndSection

If you only need to get a graphical session, you may create and use a new xorg.conf file this way :
#as root init 3 #Create a new xorg.conf -> /root/xorg.conf.new Xorg -configure mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/old.xorg.conf mv /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf init 50 + 1 = 1 != 2 <> 3 != 4 ...
Until the camel can pass though the eye of the needle.

Fixed it! I found a file called xorg.conf.old and looked at it, it had the Driver set to "ati", made that change and it loaded fine.
I also got the driver to install (had to chmod -x file), but could still use help. I posted updated info in my Dual Monitor thread.
