where can I find the XF86Config and XF86Config-4 files?


Hello,

After installing Mandrake 10.0, when I reboot the computer it puts me right in a shell (console), I have to make changes in XF86Config and XF86Config-4 files but i didn't know where can i find them and how to proceed to changes. Have I to do this in the console? if yes how can I do this?
Please Help.

Faithfully yours.

Souaw.

/etc/X11

and in future if you need to find a specific file, open a console and login as root and issue a command like:

login as root like: su

enter the password

then to find a file do:

find |grep filename

Souaw,
You can also insert the install CD and reboot (sort of like your reinstalling), but you select "update Mandrake" instead of "install".
Basically you're jumping straight to the Mandrake XF86config program and it's easy to set up from there. Don't forget to save it when your done.
Hope this helps,
J
