Linux hate me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I am new to Linux, just got it running today, am now running Red Hat 7.2 on a P200 MHz with 32 MB of RAM(Is it Work ?). Anyways, I installed it fine, with KDE and the Gnome desktop environment. Now, being a total nOOb, I just assumed that X would be configured correctly. Well, I got an error when I typed in "StartX" so I configured it with xf86config. Now I get this error message when I try to run X:

------------------------------------------

Config Error: /usr/X11R6/lib/XF86Config: 48
subsection "extmod"

Module section keyword expected
giving up
xinit: Connection refused(errno 111):
unable to connect to X server
Xinit: no such process(errno 3):Server error

What hardware are you using ? Have you checked its compatiblity ? Try running Xconfigurator ! Search this site, this question is asked all the time.

To get XFree86 3.3.6 you'll have to use Red Hat 6.2 instead as Red Hat 6.2 uses XFree86 3.3.6

When I had troubles with S3 Trio on my SuSe, I tried the S3 Virge module, instead, and it worked.
