Fedora_7 upgrade to F9 has stopped my GUI from working!
 
Hello,

I just "upgraded" a F7 box to F9.

Upon trying to startx, I get the below errors:

(EE) No device detected
Fatal server error: no screens found
giving up
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111):unable to conenct to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): server error

Please help..what has happened to my X server? I try to set the DISPLAY variable, but same error when trying to 'startx'

I read that F9 does not support older video cards? I have an OLD Compaq thin client box that has ran F7 for the last several years.

Thank you for input on possible corrective action.

can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf?

F9 ships with a new version of Xorg that has bitten quite a few people - even those with newer cards. If that is your problem, check google. Many have experimented with downgrading xorg to solve their issues.

Thank you both for this offer of help!! That is the great part of "community."
Below is my Xorg config and I'll start googling the other info to have at the ready..Thanks again!
