Unhappy X server in RedHat 9.0 not starting !!


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?

thats a nasty set of errors.

did you download redhat 9 ?
did the iso's pass the md5checksum ?
did you run the media check on all 3 disks before installing ?
did they all pass the media test ?
