Hi. Have a 30 gig HDD partitioned in two with Win 98 on 1st partition and linux on last 6gig partition.
I partitoned my 30 gig like this>
hda2 swap 128megabytes
hda3 root the remaining of the 6 gigs
Should I have partitioned differently? I'll take suggestions on how I should partition my 6 gigs(which is the 2nd partition of 30 gig, with win98 on 1st partition)
Also doing the above everything worked fine and after going thru partitioning and setup of slackware from cd I rebooted and entered a root password and logged on. I could see all my directories, etc and run emacs and all but could not startx. I got the following printout on screen upon typing startx>
blah blah blah ...
(==) using config file '/etc/X11/XF86Config
(EE) VESA(0): No Matching Modes
(EE) screen(s) found, but none have a usable config
fatal server error
no screens found
I have not told slackware of my monitor, vid card, etc. Was I supposed to do this during the setup session? Because I don't believe I was presented with these screens. Or Am I supposed to edit my XF86Config file? Im confused coming from Redhatland. Sorry
