Problem getting X up on a Dell Dimension 2400 with Intel 845G

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I have a Dell Dimension 2400 that I though I would screw around and setup Fedora 6 on to learn Linux.  Well, I cannot get X to start.  It complains:
(==) Using config file: "etc/X11/xorg.conf"
(EE) I810(0): No video BIOS modes for chosen depth.
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration
I have seen other posts regarding this error and have taken corrective action to no avail.  I upgraded the Dell's BIOS to A05 and I change the shared video RAM to 8 MB.  I then ran system-config-display but it does not work.
Any guidance would be most appreciated.
