Configuring X


Installed Slackware 9.0 (full) and I'm trying to get X going. Ran xf86config, setup everything the way it should be. When I issue the command "startx", the output sais "Fatal IO Error 104: no screens found". I'm hoping this is a common error and there is a simple solution. Thanks.

What video card are you using and what was the exact error messages? Post them and you can get more suggestions on your problem.

nVidia TnT2 RIVA 32MB. I think the problem is that it's not detecting my video card.

For now try the Vesa video server just to see if you can get X to work. Someone that uses other nVidia card may have more insight on getting that to work for you.

I didn't know they had a video driver for a VMWare Guest OS. It's working.

Did you run xf86config as root or as user?
