Red Hat 9 X Issues...
To cut a long story short, I was tired of Windows and wanted change. After grabbing myself a copy of RH9, I set up a dual-partition, with XP the default OS.
The installation went fine, but apparently, X configuration didn't. Before I continue, here are the vital specs:
*Windows XP (Primary), RH9 dual-boot environment, with GRUB as boot loader.
*GeForce FX 5200, 128 MB of video RAM.
*SyncMaster 955DF Monitor
*PS/2 optical mouse
When I select to load RH9 at GRUB, it starts to load, then the screen goes black and my monitor goes off. VERY frustrating, as I have to send a CRTL+ALT+DELE command to reboot.
At the X config screen during the installation process, I chose the GeForce FX driver, 24 bit color, and 1024X768.
What's going on here? How can I fix X? This is really frustrating, and I pray you guys can help me.
