I am not familiar with that distribution or XorgConfig.

Go to a text console CTRL+ALT+function Key "usually F1-F6"


/etc/X11/XF86Config or Xorg.config

As root edit your:
 /etc/X11/XF86Config

In the Monitor Section make sure the
   HorizSync   30-70
    VertRefresh 50-160
are correct for your monitor.

Do you get a graphical desktop at all?  If you do, select "Computer", 
"Desktop Preferences" and "Screen Resolution".

Hi, Interested in trying Linux? Well you came to comp.os.linux.advocacy for some reason, and you probably won't stay long. Here's a list of Linux distributions to choose from. Ubuntu http://www.ubuntu.com Newbie friendly and good support forums. SuSE http://www.novell.com/linux Pay for some support if you're not opposed to spending a little money. Fedora Core http://fedoraproject.org If you're more comfortable with your computer, try this one out. If you get frustrated, don't give up so easy. There is a wealth of information online for whichever distro you choose....

dual monitor setup for linux
Hi, I have a 2 year old ADM dual core with 2 GB RAM and 128 MB GeForce card that I use for experimenting with XenServer5. I would like to convert this pc to a multiboot (Ubuntu, Debia, Fedora, Centos) dual monitor desktop pc that can make the most of the bells and whistles in GNOME and KDE. This means an extra graphic card and monitor. I've been checking prices and apparently it is possible to buy a 1 GB graphic card and 24" widescreen LCD for 250=80. Compared with the more than 650 =80 I paid 8 years ago for my current Samsung SyncMaster LCD that is very cheap. On the other hand, I...

I have Linux! I have Linux!
Ok, after two days of trying to get Windos 1900 installed and working , I sat down an hour ago and installed Linux. In an hour. Smirk. Ok, I will be honest. I did have some problems, but I believe they were of my own ignorance. 0) I started with trying to install Suse. However, I couldn't get it to install. Why? Because I didn't read the menu. There is a startup menu and the first entry is boot to harddisk. I thought that was the thing to do so I did it about 4 times. Then I gave up. However, I went back to it and subsequently realized that I should have chosen the 2nd men...

My Linux is not your Linux
To the denizens of comp.os.linux.advocacy! So many people demonstrate in this newsgroup that they know only a Linux of Hatred and Greed, of paranoia, and of a selfish sense of entitlement.

Which Linux OS best for beginner to setup as Web / Mail server / Internet sharer and firewall?

I am planning to try to set up a server which the DSL will connect to, and will run our web site off the server, as well as automatically get our POP3 emails from our outside accounts, and hold them until our local computers want to see them. It should also share the internet connection and run a firewall. We are only considering no cost versions of Linux for this purpose, an...

Linux setup problem.
Hi. I have tried installing Mandrake Linux 9.1 on my machine at home, but I can't seem to get the video card to work.

The Linux installer runs XFree86 v4.3, and I think this one is most up to date. Any suggestions will be much appreciated? Thank you.

Linux should disown elementary OS Linux for the Scam that it is.
No Problem'o, DooFuS. I can blame it all on the Linux Mint TEXT size being = too small on my 19 inch monitor. As Moi was saying... I tried two more additional downloads of elementary OS Linux. Both of them= likewise failed. While they could have been discriminating against Moi for his ZERO contribu= tion, I will be damned if I am going to PAY GOOD money for something when t= here is no guarantee that the stupid DOWNLOAD wont fail, JUST TO FIND OUT t= hat it WONT work at all on my computer hardware, let alone whether OR NOT i= t will actually do what is being claimed. Moi has NEVER experienced a download problem with Linux Mint. From what I have seen, elementary OS Linux is a scam, much like those Windo= ws come ons that claim that they can fix your computer problems merely by m= ucking with the Windows Registry. The Linux World should disown elementary OS Linux for being the Scam that i= t is. Or, can any phony distro claim to be Linux? Yeah, where are the Linu= x police?
