I am new to Linux. Being embedded system student, got interest in Linux and needs this OS.
I have few doubts. I use AMD Athalon 2000+ with ASUS motherboard and Nvidia Geforce 2 . RAM is 256 MB DDR.
I have sucessfully installed Mandrake Linux 9.2 and now facing following problem.
1) When booting from linux, system hangs while detecting network files and while APM daemon server. I have to forcibly use interactive setup to skip nework detection and then skipping APM daemon server.
2) System runs well in console mode. But, I can't shift it to graphical mode as when I give startx command, it gives following message
"execve failed for /etc/x11/x (errono 2)"
What is wrong with the system?
Also note that I tried to access x11 directory but when I give " cd x11 " command in etc directory, it says that " directory not avl" although I can see that directory x11 is present in etc folder( by typing command "ls" in etc folder).
Is this problem because of skipping APM daemon ? Also note that I am not able to install or run any other linux distributions e.g. Red Hat 7.2, Fedora. Only QNX (RTOS) which is similar to linux mode works on my PC in graphics mode.
