Fedora core 6 First Boot Monitor Display Problem .. X11 not getting configured...


Hi there!
I installed Fedora core 6 on intel P-4, 845 motherboard, with samtron monitor ..
But after getting installed, at the first boot the X11 is not getting configured and the blank screen is comming with some color strips ....
when i killed the terminal using Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, the terminal is appeared with large fonts ... and i am not able to configure the X11(xorg.conf) ......

anybody please tell me the default confiuration settings for xorg.conf which will work for 15' monitor ....as i can edit xorg.conf file from windows using ext3 mount tools ...

regards
NGrid...

yeah i have the same prob

Ok so i was running dual boot ubuntu edgy - and fedora core 6 both running fine setup just how i wanted them - i was not however satisfied with my integrated graphics card so i bought an ati x1300 512mb off ebay - after i installed that fedora would boot until it got to loading any graphics the moniter would go blank saying "signal out of range" like the refresh rate is to high - i would like to figure this out also - i tried reconfiguring the fedora x11 file from ubuntu - it didnt help so i decided to reload fedora - i havent solved this issue yet but i believe it has nothing to do with the moniter and everything to do with the ati graphics card.....

You need to edit this section to accurately reflect the rates for your monitor:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
HorizSync 31.0 - 82.0
VertRefresh 56.0 - 76.0
Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Then in this section:
Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "NVIDIA Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 1
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 4
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 8
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 15
Modes "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 16
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
EndSubSection
EndSection

pay attention to the last 2 stanzas. You should probably allow "1024x768" max at first so that you can get a screen. if that works then you can always add "1280x1024" at a later time. This method pretty much always works for me. Others may disagree.

Probably pretty much the same as above for you too, 5thgendriver. You guys need to have the numbers correct in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

One thing I forgot to mention. You may also need to fall back to the default graphics driver. In this section:
Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV34 [GeForce FX 5200]"
Driver "nvidia"
EndSection

on my computer, with an NVidia card I would change to Driver "nv". I think generic is Driver "vesa". Not sure about an ATI card. And backup the file before you make ANY changes.
