Xorg problems: "No screens found"


Hi all. I've been trying to get one of my SuSE 10.0 PCs to run at 800x600 @ 85Hz. Higher resolutions are fuzzy on the old Dell E770P monitor, and lower frequencies flicker visibly to my eye.

Here's my entire xorg.conf file. What have I done wrong?

no idea... the actual errors your getting would be a start.... that no screens mesage is the the dying gasps, as it the Xserver gets to a point where it accepts there are no screens. why there are no screens is a seperate thing, with seperate errors in your Xorg.0.log file

It looks to me like you should be using the nv driver rather than the nvidia proprietary drivers because you have a pre-geforce card.

I changed the "Section Device" part back to the xorg.conf.install values which worked.

Unfortunately, I still get the "No screens found" error.

Hmm, looks like it is a syntax error. Has anyone spotted anything out of place?

Edit: Fixed the syntax error. Now, this is the only error I'm getting. Not very informative...
