Hello, I've got a Linux box (RedHat 8.0) and a PC and I bought one of those cheap KVM switches (Linxel or something). Problem is, once I boot into the X-window system of RedHat, I get a black screen and blurb about "video not supported" or something...
Are there drivers that I'd need to make this work? Or should I return the switch box and get something that works?
NO, I do not want to partition hard drives; I need two machines. Thanks.
Thanks, yes it works without the switch--I got the switch so I could free some desk space.
I did boot without switching--once it hit the XWindows system (it showed all the startup plain text), it went black with the message, so it knows the monitor is there, it just won't display anything when it hits XWindows
