Re: [vox-tech] Flat Panel and Linux



I did as told.  Installed Linux with a CRT attached and configured X. I worked
fine.  Then went back and ran Xconfigurator (with CRT attached), selected LCD
1024x768, edited /etc/X11/XFree86config.  Shutdown.  Attached LCD, started,
Linemode works fine.

# startx
Screen flashes white (1/4 sec) then black
alt-ctrl-backspace
page full of errors
# startx 2>err
alt-ctrl-backspace

I look at the err file and it says authority error and ... but I didn't get this
when I ran with CRT.

I'm sorry, like a dumbass I didn't write the XFree86config file to floppy.  I'm
using one machine two drives, one NT, one (attempting) linux. So to write this
email I have to disconnect drives and reboot to NT.  anyway I have the err file
below, I'll post the config file if necessary:

XFree86 Version 3.3.6 / X Window System
(protocol Version 11, revision 0, vendor release 6300)
Release Date: January 8 2000
 If the server is older than 6-12 months, or if your card is newer
 than the above date, look for a newer version before reporting
 problems.  (see http://www.XFree86.Org/FAQ)
