startX not working
Having successfully installed RedHat Linux 7.2 in a P4 machine with 512 MB RAM & Intel D845GLLY chipset,Iam not able to invoke X windows.I get the following response from issuing the “startx” command:
XFree86 Version 4.1.0 (Red Hat Linux release: 4.1.0-3) / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6510)
Release Date: 2 June 2001
If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is
newer than the above date, look for a newer version before
reporting problems. (See http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ)

I tried the installation in a P3 machine with 810 chipset and everything is working fine.I think the problem is with the chipset. Can any body help me to solve the problem ...?
Sounds like your XF86Config file is:
a) Not where it is supposed to be (/etc/X11/ is where *I think* it ought to be for Redhat)
b) Corrupted. You didn't happen to edit it using a DOS editor by chance? Post it here if you would.
Redhat has X configurator programs, but as an SuSE user, I don't know exactly what they are (/usr/X11R6/xf86config4 maybe?)
Just curious, but why aren't you using a more recent version of Redhat?
open the /root/XF86Config start looking on line 2 .
either remove the word "key" and test it or if this wont work you have to take a look at the syntax in this file (easy to understand)
PS: always make a copy from that file before editing it ;)
If you r using Red Hat use "XConfigurator" or "xsetup". Check the upper and lowercase of the commands I have mentioned.
Red Hat has this XConfigurator program for setting up xwindow.
Hope this should solve the problem.
