Changing Xf86 config file
hi ppl, I have a problem and i'd be very pleased if you took a moment to look at it.
Plz plz plz help me on the following:
When i startup my computer, i see the bootloader:
when i choose linux, i get an kernel error. when i choose windows, my pc reboots and i see the bootloader without windows. when i enter linux now, startup works correctly. Why???
(bootloader is installed on the Linux partition) Windows doesn't even exist on my system anymore. I just reinstalled my entire system and deleted all partitions.
Then when linux finally starts i see the cursor for a moment and the linux textmode asking me for a login. I already asked this in another thread and i made up out of the answers i should have chosen more conservative settings for my monitor. With my most recent installation however i chose 800x600 16 bits, while my monitor could handle 1024x768 at 32 bits under windows. Maybe i should have chosen even more conservative settings, but since installing linux is something i already tried twice for the exact same problem and is a very timerobbing thing, i'd like to avoid that one this time. Instead i tried to type startx again under root login but didn't work. i also tried 'xf86config' and went through all settings, but when it came to saving the whole thing to the file xfconfig-4, i didn't get acces to it. No permission to overwrite this file or something like it (I was logged in as ROOT!!!) Should i use chmod on the file? How do i do that? Or should i choose to run another configuration file instead? How do i select another one? plz help i'm desperate and noob.
Tanx for reading it all through here
