(i am not an expert in Linux)
I had Redhat 6.2 installed on one system, later on I moved the hard drive to another system. Now I am not able to configure it for the second computer. still it has the old computer configuration. When i tried to do Xconfigurator, it says "Server doesn't exist, canot continue. tried to use ../../usr/X11R6/bin/XF86_S3" .
I am not able to login in graphical mode. it allows me to login as single user.
Experts, please help, I've some very important data .
First log as single user, edit /etc/inittab. In line
change 5 to 3. Next time it will boot to multiuser text mode (if you change the value back to 5, X will be again). In text mode you run startx to get to X.
Then X configuration: it's in /etc/X11/XF86Config (or XF86Config-4 for X version 4). If you have VGA generic settings left in the file, you'll need to use this. But now write which version of X you're using (configuration file format is different).
There are different methods depending on your distro. Try netconf. If it's not there
look if there is eth0 listed. It shouldn't be.
Your isa card is probably ne2000 compatibile. So load the driver:
modprobe ne io=0xxxx irq=xx
Example: modprobe ne io=0x300 irq=10
You'll need to enter good settings. If you don't know just guess (values of io can be 0x280 0x300 0x330, irq 3 5 7 9 10 11)
When it's done:
ifconfig eth0 your_ip
