    Getting frustrated....


    Really want to learn about Linux. Installed Red Hat Enterprise and my GRUB works, I can chosse to boot Windows or Linux. But when I choose linux, X fails to start.

    Not even sure how to copy my log into this message, so will put part I think problem is with.

    XFree86.0.log:

    (II) Primary Device is: PCI 01:00:0
    (--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
    (WW) RADEON: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found
    (EE) No devices detected.

    Fatal server error:
    no screens found


    I have a Radeon 9800 Pro with 128mb ram.

    Setup auto detected my card and monitor (with correct rates).

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    go to www.linuxhardware.net or to rh: http://hardware.redhat.com/hcl/ and make sure your video card is supported.

    http://hardware.redhat.com/hcl/ doesn't show ANY ATI RAdeon as being supported, but I know people are using them.

    Just is frustrating.

    And RH detected a Radeon 9800 during the install also.



    Ok, got it to work by choosing VESA on video card slection screen.... will just have to figure out updating the drivers.

    Thanks.
