help! can not use X configuration Tool


Hi,

I am using Redhat Enterprise 3 with a fully installation. My old graphics card has a problem and I want to replace to another one that is different from the old one. When I tried to run redhat-config-xfree86, I could not get the X configuration Tool and the error messages are shown as follow. Would you please tell me what was wrong and what I should do?


**************
# redhat-config-xfree86
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/xconf.py", line 350, in ?
hardware_state = XF86HardwareState(xconfig)
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/xhwstate.py", line 143, in
__init__
self.init_from_xconfig(xconfig)
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/xhwstate.py", line 272, in
init_from_xconfig
self.all_resolutions.sort (compare_resolution)
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/xhwstate.py", line 50, in
compare_resolution
a1 = resolution_area(res1)
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/xhwstate.py", line 46, in
resolution_area
(w, h) = resolution_from_string(res)
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/rhpl/xhwstate.py", line 43, in
resolution_from_string
return (string.atoi(w), string.atoi(h))
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/string.py", line 225, in atoi
return _int(s, base)
ValueError: invalid literal for int(): 1024@120

Thanks,

njlg

Thanks Bosewicht.

Would you please you tell me how I can find the the new card driver if I edit XF86Config? Is that a way to list all drivers with corresponding device name?

so you need to install the nvidia drivers and do a search for Quadro4 here are LQ. There are a lot of posts about what you need to do with a lot of X config examples
