Unhappy X not working!


This is Sathya from India. I am using RedHat 7.2... I made some mess with xf86config (thru' program) and now X refuses to start. I have a Samsung 17" (SAMTRON 75E) monitor. Any solutions???
Thanx in advance.

Try running xf86config (as root, from the console); that will re-build your XF86Config file. Be sure to have information about your video setup handy, especially the horizontal and vertical refresh rates of your monitor, which should be in the manual for your monitor.
