Hello peeps, absolute total UNIX and Linux newbie here, limit of my current knowledge is being able to use VI lol
I have installed Red Hat 9.0 ok and can get into the main window no problem. Decided to have a go at updating the video driver to try and get something better than 800x600... Got the latest Linux drivers for my MSI Gforce FX 5500 from NVidias website, followed the instructions for editing the XF86Config file and it was all going well until I tried to restart X, I get the following error....
No devices detected
Fatal Server Error:
No screens found
I have read as much as I can and am now totally stuck! From what it seems from others problems I need to show you my XF86Config file, well I have checked that Load "glx" was present and it was - didnt find Load "drv" or Load "GLcore" as the Nvidia readme said I may or may not and only thing I changed from the bare install was
Driver "vesa" to Driver "nvidia"
Havent specified a monitor to use, is this neccessary? From what I have read it looks like I need to check if "agpart" is loading and it isnt, tried running modprobe agpart and got the following error
modprobe: Cant locate module agpart
Can anyone offer me any ideas?
