X and Blue screen?


I haven't used linux in a while and seem ot have a problem after a fresh install.

I can get to the command line fine but when i try and run X, I get a a blue screen with an X in the middle. my config file i think was set to 1280x1024 but the instlal didnt have drivers for my Hyundai L70S LCD.

How can I fix this so I can get into X without the blue screen?

** Edit: This seems to be the error hidding int eh back ground:

Failed to load module " /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/extentions/libglx.a" (once only 135962511)

I found another post about commenting that load section out that deals with glx stuff. Does this mean the video card i have does nto support 3d acceleration or just doesnt handle GL?

Its a onboard Intel 815chipset.

I love learning this stuff

intel 815 DOES support 3d, you should load i810 driver (?) then glx and dri.
But I think your problem isn't glx.
