I have just finished installing slack8.1, all went well.
but when i first boot up and log in, then i issue the command startx, and it refuses to to as its told!
the problem seems to be that it doesnt have a driver maybe?
here is the output from the end of the /var/log/XFree86.0.log file
i cant post the entire file its too huge! but it seems to go through and try all possible modes, then this:
Total memory: 1024 64kb banks (64M)
(EE) VESA(0): No matching modes
(II) UnloadModule: "vesa"
(II) UnloadModule: "ddc"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libddc.a
(II) UnloadModule: "int10"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/linux/libint10.a
(II) Unloadmodule: "vbe"
(II) Unloading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/libvbe.a
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
Fatal server error
no screens found
anyone know the answer to this one?
what configurations is it talking about?
I know my screen works i have used mandy9 and rh7.2 with it fine. Im pretty sure mandy9 uses XFree86 4.2.0 ? same as slack8.1
my video card is a geforce2 ti (nvidia chipset)
