X Window System - error messages / No display on LCD Panel


Hi,

I have successfully installed X Window Systems, but being a noob, I cant figure out what's wrong with my setup.

I have connected an Shard LCD Panel to my Linux box - CentOS 4.6 (Final) and I am not getting any display.

If I run "startx", below are the error messages I am getting:

----------------
[root@asterisk1 chill]# startx

It sounds like you need to set up your graphics card. I don't know what tools CentOS provides, so I can't help you there. You also don't say what graphics card you have installed, so I can't offer advice about which driver you need to load.

If by chance you have nVidia graphics, try running /usr/bin/nvidia-xconfig to set up the graphics card.
Then try 'startx' or 'init 5' (without quotes) to see if you get graphics display on the monitor.

I am using a Toshiba LCD Panel and my system cant seem to be compatible with my LCD panel. Is it because the VGA card is not properly configured?

Appreciate your advise on which driver I need to load. Thanks.
