2 major issues I am currently having in my jump into the open source world. Right now we'll focus on what seems to be the biggest one. Also, as a preface...RTFM...I already have...over and over.
I currently have redhat 7 installed on my compaq presario 1200 laptop. I've been running it in command line for about 2 months, just wandering around and learning what i can. however, id REALLY like a gui and apparently the x server hates me and/or my computer.
I pick the proper video card (trident cyberblade) and what i assume to be the proper monitor (ive tried every compaq laptop monitor option) and no luck.
A friend recommended to do the custom monitor setup but neither in my laptop manual or anywhere online can i find the sync rates.
