Cant start KDE


I installed Red Hat 7.3 in my Toshiba Satellite 1130, keeping the default values from installation, but i cant start KDE. I'm receiving the following message:

(II) Primary Device is: PCI 00:0F:0
(EE) No devices detected

Fatal server error:
no screens found

My graphic controller is a intel 82852/82855 GM/GME model.

Any tips ???

your problem is not kde, that error message is comming from X.

looks like you are trying to run an anchant version of linux on new hardware that the old version does not support.

is it aclean install or have you been fidleing around with the X config file.
did linux correctly identift your graphics hardware ?

is /etc/X11/XF86COnfig file correct ?
