Question


I use the latest version of Zipstack and today I downloaded the correct files for my linux and installed them. Then I went to run xf86config and I got the response: cannot execute binary code. So I hit Alt-F1 to go into real Linux mode and tryed again. Same response! So I tried another way around, I tryed running xconsole and got the response: Error:No Screens Found.

Can some one help me with this problem ASAP?

Thanks,
Jmattick

Did you execute the command as root? Can you actually get a desktop up? Is zipstack a Linux distro? (sorry for asking )

RE:xf86 problems

Yes, I was logged in as root, yes I can get a desktop up, and yes, zip stack is a linux distro.

If you were logged in as root then I would suggest doing what mcleodnine suggested. It may be a case of an error with the file in that it doesn't work.

In response to your question...

Yes, I tryed that. Nothing happened, Nothing AT All. So, I'm giving up on ZipSlack tonight and d-loading Peanut Linux.

Thanks for all your help,
