GoblinX - Boot problems

If I try to boot GoblinX on my computer I get a weird error spat at me - No screen detected (or something similar). I get this with all of the Window Mangers that come with GoblinX. I obviously have a monitor - but no graphics card.

Is there some way to solve this?

You can also get this error if your X windows system is not properly configured. It generally means that your X windows system is trying to access a *monitor* thats not present. Easiest way to fix it - try another distribution / fix the configuration file present in /etc/X11/ directory.

Good Luck

Did you try use safe commands, like safe safek and safew?? These commands use vesa config for X... You can configure X using xorgconfig or xorgcfg command, too...
Try see algo log from X... read it into /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see error messages...
