Unhappy different problem, prolly relates to first in some way

ok, when trying to start up x, i now get this err:
operating system: Linux 2.2.5-22 smp I686[ELF]
configured drivers:
Mach64: accelerated server for ATI Mach64 graphics adapters (patchlevel 1) (using VT number 7)
X86Config: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/X86Config
(**) stands for supplied, (--) stands for probed/default calues
(--)no module path specified using default: /usr/X11R6/lib/modules
dbe: Unknown error loading module Config error: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/X86Config: 48
Subsection "extmod"
Module section keywork expected

Fatal server error
Child error writting to pipe (broken pipe)

When reporting an error related to server crash, please send the full server output, not just the last message

X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown)
this should be an exact copy of the error message unless i typoed

Sounds like you've been editing XF86Config, eh?

Seriously though, what I mean is that it looks like you've incorrectly altered/modified a line somewhere in that file, and now it's complaining about it. The "48" is probably the line number, which would put it in the "Module" section, as the error says.
Post your XF86Config file (using cut and paste, so that there are no typos). Also tell us which version of Redhat and which vid card you use.

well, i was gonna say that id love to post my X86 file, but that id need to get X to work first. Fortunatley enuf, i did . i just remembered that "hey last time i ran Xconfigurator it made a valid config file right, so if i just run that again and choose all the same options then i..." and it even worked must be my lucky day i guess . anyways, i guess this problem is pretty much solved, but i wanted to point out that a) i managed to stumble my thru something without asking 400 questions and just following the word-by-word instructions fo someone more expirienced than me and that b) i never actualy edited my Config file i just used XF86Config, and ill prolly never use it again . but if anyone is still interested in the continuing saga of my amusing Linux problems then im sure ill have more questions to post soon
