Problems with X after hardware upgrade
Hi, I have a similar problem, or at least the previous reply helped me somewhat, but I need some more help.
I was running X quite happily, until I upgraded my entire computer, except for the HDD, so basically I stuck the HDD into a new system.
I booted up, and all was happy, kudzu picked up all my new hardware, and all seemed well.
So I type startx, and obviously this doesn't work, so I run Xconfigurator (even tried some other command line utilities), to setup the new video card.
I had no trouble installing it, but the problem is, that whenever I type startx, it still does not start.
The error is that there is no screen found, but it also still refers to my old video card.
So it is somehow not accepting the new configuration.
Now, to get back to the previous post:
doing a cd /usr/X11R6/bin
and then typing
XFree86 -xf86config /root/XF86Config.new
So the hardware is fine....
I also tried cp /root/XF86config.new /etc/X11/XF86Config
but still startx gives the same error message.
What can I do?
