Trouble with graphical interface
« on: August 22, 2004, 02:33:34 PM »
I have just installed fedora core 2. it will not load the graphical interface. What do I need to do? it gives me a message saying that it can not load the graphical interface, after it gives me that message it takes me to the login screen. I have no clue what i need to do. I have tryed reinstalling it but it still gives me that message.

The message that i get is as follows:

I cannot start x server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not setup correctly. Would you like to view the x server output to diagnose the problem?

                             yes                          no

Would you like to view the detailed x server output as well?
                            yes                            no

I will disable this x sever for now. Restart GDM when it is configures correctly.
                                              ok

I have already tried typing startx. A bunch of stuff starts scrolling down the screen and then it takes me back to the login.

Post ur xorg.conf file located under /etc/X11/ directory to us.

If possible truncate the rest and leave the [Display] section only for posting. I believe it's a very long config file.

I suspect is ur  graphic confguration is the cause.
Please inform us ur video card and monitor model.
Wrong monitor resolutions and refresh rates can give u such headaches.

It's ok, that's the fun in it, solving a challenging puzzle. :)

hi just give the following command on your konsole
su -c Xconfigurator
you get the screen setup this it will start

if this not run   then give following
Xfree86setup

or
type setup
it opens the setup window
say configure xwindow
