Intel 810 onboard GFX messing X
So I logged into Slackware 9.1 with root after installation that went very smooth. =) I hate GUI installation but I need GUI desktop. So I started "startx" then suddenly these blue red green lines appeared on the screen. Then I tried x86config. Still a problem.
Here are the specs of my comp

I thought I could have selected the wrong display for the integrated graphics(Intel 810). Please help me. I dont know whether I need some drivers or anything, in other words n00b
What is your output of lspci?
Should look something like this if you have the i810:
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. 82810 GMCH [Graphics Memory Controller Hub] (rev 03)
And when you run xf86config a root since Slackware doesn't configure X during installation, when viewing the card database, did you select number 15 I believe it is in the list for the i810?
Also always make sure your putting in the correct hsync and vsync rates for your monitor.
Thanks for replying, trickykid. I did some search and found some stuff. I re-did the xf86config and now :) Im in the X after 10 minutes . Cool but I am currently using XFCE, so how do I change it to KDE?
