MDK 9.2: X freezes on a black screen or blue screen with "X cursor"
 
I am having a similar problem when trying to run X with mandrake 9.2...

My monitor (NEC MultiSync HR17) and video card (S3 Savagee4) are both listed under XFdrake...

I am attempting to run X under an 800x600 16bpp configureation...but when X attempts to load I simply get a blue screen with a black "x cursor" on it...on top of that to get out of X I am having to reboot my machine...

any suggestions on how to fix this? BTW I am attempting to run a Gnome GUI

any help with this would be much appreciated
/apoc

oh yeah i am using XFree 4.3

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
