    Problem with Oracle Enterprise Linux Display


    Hi,
    I'm trying to Install Oracle enterprise Linux 5 64 bit on my Desktop and have a GUI Issue. The screen looks good till installation, soon after reboot the screen splits into two,i.e a part of the screen is cut and displayed on the right side, also cannot view the upper part of the screen. I will attach the Screenshots of the Screen. WINDOWS WORKS FINE.

    This happened with two of my desktops
    1. Intel i3 3rd gen processor with Intel 60 motherboard
    4gb ram , 500gb hd
    Monitor: Acer V193HQl 18.5"
    and second machine

    2. Intel dual core processor.
    3gb ram, 500gb hd
    Dell 15" monitor
    I tried yum update command to update all the drivers, but still the issue persists.

    Please help me out with this issue as I need to install Oracle Apps on my desktop .

    What is your video board, and what driver are you using?

    Intel HD Graphics, i.e inbuilt graphic card. Motherboard model DH61H0.
    Regarding drivers, after completing the installation even a flash drive could not get detected. So could not try to install any driver. Only Could update all drivers using YUM update command.

    hello and welcome!

    can you check to see if you have an X config file? here is the usual location:

    Code:
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    if it is there, post the contents here.

    also, you can check the X log file for errors:

    Code:
    /var/log/Xorg.0.log
    some versions of X allow you to reconfigure it like this:
    Code:
    X -configure
    you'd want to do that in non-graphical mode though.

    Do what atreyu suggests. I would not think that Oracle Linux (a clone+ of Red Hat Enterprise Linux) would cause this sort of problem with a vanilla Intel system. You might want to make sure your BIOS is properly configured, however. Also, does this system have a UEFI BIOS?

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for the quick response. I re-tried installation using a new iso downloaded from oracle website and this time after reboot it looks more akward(screenshot attached) and cannot go any further as I cannot see the options, so I could not get the info abt xorg file contents. I will go and install with the older DVD and try to fetch the file.
    About BIOS, not sure about if my system supports UEFI BIOS. I have screenshots of the BIOS information attached with this, so please let me know if that info is helpful.IMAG0309.jpg

    I have no experience with Oracle Linux but usually you don't need an xorg.conf file these days. Try renaming the file and then rebooting to see if it auto detects more appropriate settings. To rename log in as root and run
    Code:
    cd /etc/X11
    mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.saved

    Not related to your problem, but it is usually recommended to set your system hardware clock to UTC/GMT and let the TZ (timezone) settings adjust your view of the time. Then, enable the ntpd service (network time protocol daemon) to keep the clock synced with the rest of the universe.

    Hi
    Just tried moving the xorg.conf file and it's of no use. Had to move back again to the same file, as the system could not get started in graphical mode.
