RHEL X Server Problem on my laptop


Hi all,

i'm currently using RHEL WS Update 3 on my laptop HP Compaq nx6325.

I have successfully installed the RHEL few days ago and the OS ran smoothly. However, when i restarted the laptop today, the following problem pops up:

"Couldn't start X server, trying with a fresh configuration"

I have tried out the commands like startx, rehat-config-xfree86 -- reconfig, startx >& /tmp/startx.out
-- but those don't work,
thn i have gone to the level 3 with no GUI:
# init 3 (switch to runlevel 3)
# redhat-config-xfree86 --noui (re-generate xfree86 config file with default values for a generic multi-sync monitor and video card)

-- but
there's still no change.

What could be the solution? Or it's a fact that i can't run this OS on my laptop?

Many thanks!

I would suggest that you visit; http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html
and download/install the the ATI Proprietary Linux Driver (click on the Drivers & Downloads link top of page).
