I'm asking for your assistance in this one because I can't figure out what is wrong with my video settings that reside in my xconfigurator.
After I was able to get Redhat 7.2 installed I went through the xconfigurator setup and it didn't say anything was wrong but yet when I ran my gui mode for the first time there were and still are black/white rectangles/squares inside of any window or menu I try to open making it impossible to see the name or what I'm actually clicking. I then went into Xconfigurator setup from the text mode and re-entered all my info but when I tried to test the resolution settings it said there was something wrong and i need to go back and correct it.
As for what my hardware is Aoc Spectrum 5e monitor, Sis 6326 8mb video card. Does anyone know what I can do to correct this problem? Your help will be greatly appreciated.
