Help! Prob w FC6 install - xorg.conf & my Intel 82845G graphics card
Hello, all, and thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
I am somewhat of a Linux admin noob... Sorry (but I'm far from a computer noob). Anyway, I'm trying to get a dual-boot WinXP & Fedora Core 6 setup on a Compaq EVO D510 with an Intel 82845G/GL Brookdale graphics card. Everything seems to work great except that X Windows crashes on the Fedora startup with the message "No video BIOS modes for chosen depth" as well as "Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration. Fatal Error: No screens found." The error also lists xorg.conf as the file erroring.
However, X Windows I believe runs as part of the graphical install of Fedora, which works fine, as do all the live CDs I've tried on the system (quite a few now -- Knoppix, Ubuntu, SuSe, Slax, etc.). Seems to me to be a configuration issue, however, despite many changes to xorg.conf that I have tried over the last several days, I cannot get FC6 to boot properly.
I've seen several Dell owners with the same Intel graphics card as I have have had problems, but none of the things that worked for them have worked for me as far as changes to xorg.conf go. I just recently gave up and tried a reinstall of FC6 to no avail.
My xorg.conf file (haven't changed it since reinstall of FC6):
Identifier "Default Layout"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
Option "XkbModel" "pc105"
Option "XkbLayout" "us"
Viewport 0 0
It's important to note that I have also tried specifying a "vesa" driver in the "Device" section as it seems this is a more generic driver setting which has helped several, but not me unfortunately. Also, I have specified a "Monitor" section with my monitor's info, refresh rates, etc. with no luck.
Again, thanks in advance for any assistance!
