XF86Config problems & need a XF86Config file as per my PC specs !


I do have another problem now, which is with my monitor.

Red Hat's XConfigurator does not configure my monitor correctly and I get a
blank screen or four screens together i.e. one big and three small ones at
the top.

I even tried the custom install and put the following lines :-

My Monitor's specs are :-

15" LG

Horizontal 30 - 54
Vertical   50 -90
Resolution 1024 x 768 Non Interlace, 60 Hz Refresh Rate.

My Video card is "Trident Microsystems|3DIm`age 975"
Vram is 4096

I am copying the above as it comes in the XF86Config file.

I have a Microsoft compatible serial mouse without any wheels.

104 keyboard

Could you send me a custom XF86Config file that I can install and run ?

You did'nt mention whether your mouse is a PS/2 or serial, and whether
it has a scroll wheel in the center.

Anyway, run mouseconfig as root and select the appropriate type.  This
program will also update your XF86Config file for you.

Run "switchdesk" (or look in the /etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/ directory for
some clues)

edit the file /etc/inittab, there will be a line like:


Change the 3 above to 5.  The next time you reboot, it will go to X11

Hope it helps,
