Red face Fedora 6 and P4 Titan


I have no problems at all running Fedora 5.
However when I load a fresh version of Fedora 6 from CD or do an upgrade from the internet
X fails.

Please describe what Video hardware you're using. Ati, Nvidia or other? In this case it would be possible to help you.

X Display does not work

Found this article http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=549457
and used it to load the VIA Unichrome driver
This was the crucial section
afterwards u can download the rpms for via unichrome pro igp from:
http://washington.kelkoo.net/epia/FC6/i386/
download only these rpms:
xorg-x11-drv-via-0.2.1.svn295-1.fc6.i386.rpm
mesa-libGL-6.5.2-6.fc6.ucr.6.i386.rpm
mesa-libGLU-6.5.2-6.fc6.ucr.6.i386.rpm

install these rpms like:
As root user "#" prompt:
Code:

~#rpm -Uvh foobar.rpm

or by double clicking on the rpm file in Fedora.
Now again edit ur /etc/X11/xorg.conf and change the Section "Device" as follows using nano editor as earlier:
Code:
