XFree server probs on VMware/Linux
Hi, I'm not sure if this is strictly a Linux question but anyway...
I've installed the latest VMware program on a Windows host, but I cannot get the XFree server to work with Linux virtual guests (Slackware and RH 8). Windows 98SE works fine. When I type 'startx' with the Linux distros I get an error message: fatal server error: no screens found.
The log file includes (EE) VESA (0): No matching modes and (EE) Screen (s) found, but none have a usable configuration.
I wonder if this problem is related to the nvidia board.
With RH, I installed VMware Tools. This starts up a screen but that freezes and I have to power off the program and reboot.
Any help appreciated.
