Help me please!!! Im new!!
Hi to whoever is reading this. I am completely and TOTALLY new to linux, I downloaded mandrake 9.2 and installed it, I then rebooted and went into linux-smp, It asked for my login, I entered it, it then has the command line, I typed in startx which is what I read enters the gui part of linux. It thinks then it gives me an error and says something about my radeon video card. I wrote down part of the error, it read: Fatal Io Error 104 then it said XIO: Fatal Server Error : No Screens Found.
I have not a clue what to do, I am lost and I would love to learn linux, so any help is greatly appreciated.
My system consists of the following and was built by me.
Motherboard: ASUS A7N8X DELUXE REV 2.0
CPU: AMD ATHLON XP 2500+ @1.83 GHZ
MEMORY: 2 X 256 MB PC3200 SAMSUNG MEMORY
VIDEO CARD: ATI RADEON 9800 PRO AIW 128 MB
HD: Maxtor and Quantum Fireball
Thanks for any help in advance.
Chris, the new linux user.
