friend i am new to linux, i installed RHL 9.0 on my p4 computer. with sis 305 AGP card, while configuring i have not found this/compataible driver. and now it is not starting in GUI mode .please tell me how to resolve this problem
Distribution: Arch Linux 2007.05 "Duke" (Kernel 2.6.21)
(This is copied from a similar thread that I replied to not too long ago - let me know if none of this helps)
Can you get to runlevel three? (as root issue "telinit 3" or simply "init 3") If so, I would just run one of these:
xorgconfig: This one takes a bit of knowledge to get right - but has a lot of control.
Xorg --configure: this one probes everything and attempts to guess at what the best possible settings are (you can edit the xorg.conf file by hand to fix anything it may miss. Should you choose this and it not work correctly, post a copy of your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and the problems you are having and I will attempt to help)
Or (if you have an nvidia card and the official drivers)
nvidia-xconfig: I have never used this one at all so I can't tell you much.
These should work - but you have to run them as root and realize that you may not get it right on the first try, so try again! (That is - with the exception of Xorg --configure which will get the same results every time)
