XF86Config - Fatal server error No screens found.


Hi all,

I only seem able to get console mode on my SuSE 8.2 install.

XF86Config.0.0.log reports a fatal server error with 'No screen found'. The driver (s3virge_drv.o) loads ok.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

Thanks.

Sounds like SuSe couldn't guess the horizontal and vertical setting of your monitor correctly. In /etc/X11/XF86Config, what do you have under:

Code:
Section "Monitor"
        #DisplaySize      320   240     # mm
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "GWY"
        ModelName    "1b5b"
        HorizSync    30.0 - 85.0
        VertRefresh  50.0 - 120.0
        Option      "DPMS"
EndSection

Except of course, with your horizontal and vertical settings, usually if they're not on the back of the monitor you can get them off of the manufacturer's site.

Just one more of the annoyances of X.

Cheers,

Finegan
