I've bought Linux radhat 8.0 today to do my php/mysql stuff on linux. I am a very newbie here, and don't even know how a command line works (I do know DOS...)
Anyhow the installation was ok, but when I restated my computer I get a text-based logon screen (while in the installation I chose graphical).
After logon I see [root@localhost root]# (assuming that's the linux version of c:\ )
The redhat installation instructions say I have to type startx if I dont see a graphical screen.
However when I do that I get a bunch of error messages lke ....XIO: fatal error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":0.0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
I suppose it has something to do with the graphical card perhaps. I have a Diamond stealth II s220 v1.3 4Mb card running.
In the installation I chose 1024 x 768, so perhaps that is causing a conflict.
So basically my question is:
1) Is the error caused by the graphical card
2) if so How can I resize my resolution in say 800x600
3) where are the drivers for the card?
Help really appreciated
PS the card is supposed to be supported.
