Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Recently while starting RH 9.0 on my P-III 933 MHz machine with 128 MB RAM, Intel 815 chipset, and LG Studioworks 440Si monitor, the following error was displayed on the screen while starting the X Windows:
“Cannot Start the X-server. It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the output? “
On pressing OK the following message occurred:
(= = ) Using config file: “/etc/X11/XF86config”
(EE) Failed to load module “dbe” (module does not exist,0)
(EE) Failed to load module “extmod” (module does not exist,0)
(EE) Failed to load module “glx” (module does not exist,0)
(EE) Failed to load module “record” (module does not exist,0)
(EE) Failed to load module “dri” (module does not exist,0)
(EE) Failed to load module “i810” (module does not exist,0)
(EE) Failed to load module “mouse” (module does not exist,0)
(EE) No drivers available.
Fatal Server Error :
No screens found.
Then after this the following message screen is shown :
“ Would you like me to try and restart the X-server ? Your will need the root password : “
On pressing OK the computer tries to restart the X-Windows and the following is seen on the screen :
* ddcprobe returned bogus values :
ID : GSM36bd
Name : None
HorizSync : None
VertSync : None
Couldn’t start X Server. Trying with fresh configuration .
Trying with card : Intel 815
After this the following screen is shown :
“I will temporarily disable X server.
Restart GDM when it is configured correctly.”
This has happened three times and I have reinstalled the Red Hat 9.0 OS all the three times but the above problem remains. I use only KDE 3.1 as the desktop in RH9.0.
Could you help me figure out the problem and find its solution?
