Unhappy Problem with Red Hat Enterprise 5


Hello ...
This is Dream.. i am newbie on this linux world. I install Redhat Enterprise 5.0. Thats Kernal version is 2.6.18-8

My problem is that XF86config not work in my OS. even if i go to /etc/X11 i don't find any things like XF86config or XF86config.bak
i find here xorg.conf but its too little to give me total information like XF86config. where i found it. or what is alternative command of it.

I don't find font folder in here. I go to /usr/X11r6/ but not find /lib directory there istead of /lib directory i find /bin directory. I should i do now. [/usr/X11r6/bin]

By the way redhat-config-network not work in here. I just do all things with system-config-network.

So i think in this version of linux there r so many changed have been done. What is my desire commends alternative. Would any body please help. ??????

XF86config has been depreciated (no longer used). xorg.conf is what has replaced it. Judging from your kernel you really need to update your packages, last I checked the current kernel is 2.6.18-92. Some of the updates that were added between the current kernel and the one you are using may ease your issues.

XF86config and the whole XFree stuff is history now, actually for quite a few years already. Xorg is providing the X11 visuals on contemporary systems.

I assume that you are reading some outdated info documents, if you are looking for XF86config. My suggestion is to get your hands on some newer info material. Have a look at http://howtoforge.org and http://tldp.org for proper documentation.

Just FYI, the current version is 5.3. I'd recommend you get that as there have been many updates/errata fixed. If you want free, then ask for the 30 Day trial or go with CENTOS equivalent.
