Question Make old P4 into thin-client machine?


Hello

for first: please don't be worried about my english. i will try my best.

i read this thread while searching a solution for using old pc(p4, 256mb ram) as thin client.

i have done the things you said and now i have a problem:

when i try to start the x with
/etc/init.d/gdm start
there is displayed the following error:
after several information and warnings...
Code:
(EE) AIGLX: Screen 0 is not DRI capable
xkb_keycodes { include "xfree86+aliases(qwertz)" };
xkb_types { include "complete" ];
xkb_compatibility { include "complete" };
xkb_symbols { include "pc(pc105)+de(nodeadkeys)" };
xkb_geometry { include "pc(pc105)" };
The XKEYBOARD keymap compiler (xkbcomp) reports:
> Warning: Type "ONE_LEVEL" has 1 levels, but <RALT> has 2 symbols
> Ignoring extra symbols
Errors from xkbcomp are not fatal to the X server

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
1
Can anyone help?

Thanks,
Jan

Video settings problem

Start a new thread and you will get more exposure. Looks like you are having trouble with your video card settings. Repost in a new thread with a video problem title and don't forget to include your distro and computer specs would help you get it fixed quick. Looks like a simple problem.

P.S. Your english is fine.. no need to apologise .

This error could simply mean that there is no 3D card in your PC.
If that is the case comment out the following line in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Code:
#load    dri
even with that line in place I would think X should still be able to start..





P.S. Requesting moderator to split this into new thread.
