i could not perform the installation in gui mode nor can i login in to gui mode(after installation). in order to install linux i inserted th 1st bootable disc and it gave me two options to install: 1)insatll in graphical mode , 2)insatll in text mode.
Now, when i opted for the first choice,after around 10-15 seconds of processing the monitor went to standby. after a lot of trial and error methods i finally came to know that a combi od ctrl+alt+f1 could bring back the monitor from standby. then i restarted the setup in text mode and completed the whole process in text mode. After insatllation i restarted and got to the grub boot loader. now i am able to load linux and everything was going well untill the login promt came, the screen blinked and after 2 seconds it came back to this these screens:
fter that it tries to start my display with the vesa driver
the result was same as the previous one.
i am able to login to root but only in text mode .
will this problem be solved if i cofigure the x-server manually?? if yes how do i do that??
linux version : redhat linux 9
agp card : nvidia geforce fx5200 (8x agp,128mb)
m/b : intel 865p
i beleive none of the other hardware is incompatible coz everthing else works fine.
