I downloaded slackware 10.1 (two CD's) and installed basically everything. The install went through perfectly and I restarted, first finding that Lilo was not installed. So I booted in with CD1 and installed lilo through there. So that was the only little problem I had.
Then, being used to fedora, I preferred to edit my main configurations through X. So I proceeded to type in startx and then hit enter. A bunch of stuff came up that looked like loading X (but X never actually loaded), and then the screen flickered and became blank (black colored).
I tried editing the X config with xorgcfg and setting it to what I thought were my settings but it still has the error.
My monitor is a
and my Video Card is an MGA G200 AGP (matrox) which I could not find on the list of video cards for the configuration. So I left that blank and changed the monitor settings. Still, the same error.
Can anyone tell me how to fix this and why I am getting the problem? X loads fine with knoppix and (used to) with fedora. Is there any way I can copy the xorgconf from knoppix or something so that it works?
