Reset video card settings in FC2?


It used that in redhat 9 I could delete '/etc/X11/XF86Config' and run 'redhat-config-xfree86' to fix any resolution problems. Well, how do you do something similar to this with Fedora C2? Is font.conf the new xfree86Config file?

I had a power outage and my machine shut down abruptly. Now when it boots up I can see all the service starting but I can't get X to load up. The monitor flickers on and off for a minute then it tells me that there is an error and GUI will be turned off. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

I don't know about FC2 since I use Slackware, but many newer distros use XOrg instead of XF86. The config file for XOrg is "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".

Also, you'll probably need to use "XF86Config" instead of "redhat-config-xfree86". Again, I'm not sure about this since I use Slackware, but that'd be my guess.

Thanks for the response NetRaven!

I think you're right about the xorg.conf being the new XF86Config.conf file. I did try running XF86Config instead of the redhat-config-xfree86, but that didn't work. I'm sure like everything in Linux, it's been changed...

Well then you might try "xorgconfig" or "fedora-config-xorg" or something. I'm really not sure what the X config tool is - haven't had to use it in a while. Try using "XConfigurator" too. Don't forget that many Linux distros are case-sensitive, and I'm not sure if that's capitalized correctly. . .

Thanks NetRaven... Those don't work either. Oh well... When I have some time I'll research it more. I'm sure it's simular to one of these commands.
