Red face Xserver xorg.conf problem


Hello all

I am a new linux user and decided to try out suse 10.3 64bit a few days ago on an asus P5K-V with intel G33 onboard videocard. (yast recognize it).

When i boot i see first a Suse screen, but after a few seconds i get blue screen with the message no Xserver starting. Then i can only use the console.

The message i get is:
(WW) No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:0:2:1) found
(EE) intel(0): no valid modes
(EE) Screens found, but none have a usable configuration

I searched the net for a solution, but it's still not working. I am deperate now.

I tried as root:
- sax(2) with the same result
- yast (display and montor) with the same result
- I can't start Xorgconfig (no such program)
My xorg.conf file:

xserver problem

This sounds like a hardware problem. Can you start the GUI from the command line, i.e., type 'startx'. If you are trying to dual boot (blue screen suggests Windows) then best of luck as Windows always wants to assume control and it takes some editing in the bootloader to get round this. Easiest way is to have Linux on a separate disk or as a slave drive.

Thanks for the fast response.

If i startx i get the same error message

PS i don't use windows on this system (no dual boot). the blue screen isn't the famous windows blue screen. It is just a gui screen of linux where i get the message that xserver failed an where i get the option to retry.

xserver

If its not a hardware thing then where did you get your version of 10.3? Perhaps it is damaged? Have had problems with that particular distro' myself- early versions were a bit unstable. Try another and see if that helps

I think the parts in red are not correct
Code:
Section "Modes"
  Identifier   "Modes[0]"
#  Modeline 	"1280x1024" 108.88 1280 1360 1496 1712 1024 1025 1028 1060
#  Modeline 	"1280x1024" 108.0 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync
  Modeline 	"1024x60" 64.11 1024 1080 1184 1344 768 769 772 795 -Hsync +Vsync
EndSection


Section "Screen"
  DefaultDepth 16
  SubSection "Display"
    Depth      15
    Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" 
  EndSubSection
  SubSection "Display"
    Depth      16
    Modes      "1024x768" "800x600"
  EndSubSection
  SubSection "Display"
    Depth      24
    Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
  EndSubSection
Try instead
Code:
Section "Modes"
  Identifier   "Modes[0]"
  Modeline 	"1280x1024" 108.88 1280 1360 1496 1712 1024 1025 1028 1060 -HSync +Vsync
#  Modeline 	"1280x1024" 108.0 1280 1328 1440 1688 1024 1025 1028 1066 +hsync +vsync
#  Modeline 	"1024x60" 64.11 1024 1080 1184 1344 768 769 772 795 -Hsync +Vsync
EndSection


Section "Screen"
  DefaultDepth 24
  SubSection "Display"
    Depth      15
    Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600" 
  EndSubSection
  SubSection "Display"
    Depth      16
    Modes      "1024x768" "800x600"
  EndSubSection
  SubSection "Display"
    Depth      24
    Modes      "1280x1024" "1024x768" "800x600"
  EndSubSection
