trouble with fresh install of Fedora 6
 
I'm new to Linux. I downloaded and install Fedora 6 on a Dell workstation. after a successfull install, I can boot and log in. when I type "startx" to launch the GUI, it flickers and comes back to text mode with an error. it says "screen 0 is not dri capable". what can I do? should i reinstall?

i appreciate your help. thanks.

This usually happens when the X server cant load a compatible DRI module for your GPU.

What Dell machine and specs is it?

POST Your out put of 'lspci' and 'dmesg' and i might be able to tell you whats going on?
:cool:

I just reinstalled it with the GUI mode and now it's all good. Thanks for your reply.
