fatal IO error 104 on X server "0.0" in RHEL5


Hi Friends,

I m using a Presario C700 series Laptop with te WideScreen,
I have problems in loading the X server.
It could not start the Installation in Graphical Mode, but successfully done in text mode.

Most of the experts have said that system-config-display would resolve, but its actually not.

i tried system-config-display --reconfig, but still it says that it could not start.

Error: No Valid Modes
Screens found, but none have a usable configuration.

fatal server error:
No Screens found

Here is my /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Have you tried: system-config-display --reconfigure. Also, can you post the "screen" section of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file if that does nothing?

would have been nice to see what Graphics chip you have in your post.. (output of lspci

Quote:
IntelŪ Graphics Media Accelerator X3100
The Mobile IntelŪ Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 is just that part of the 965GM which is used for graphics
http://intellinuxgraphics.org/documentation.html

this wants the 'intel' driver in xorg.conf. and hopefully your kernel is new enough to have support for the 965 Chipset..
